About the Gateway Transportation Collaboration Forum

The Gateway Transportation Collaboration Forum, established in summer 2014, is a collaborative effort to ensure the Vancouver gateway is ready to manage growing trade. It consists of Transport Canada, the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, TransLink, the Greater Vancouver Gateway Council, and the B.C. Marine Terminal Operators Association.


Oversight of the Gateway Transportation Collaboration Forum is provided by a Steering Committee, consisting of senior executives from the partner organizations. Its responsibility is to understand stakeholder interests and issues, collaborate on advancing priority infrastructure projects, evaluate and prioritize projects, and identify and pursue viable funding sources.


Greater Vancouver Gateway 2030

Greater Vancouver Gateway 2030 is the Gateway Transportation Collaboration Forum’s strategy for smart infrastructure investment to remove bottlenecks impeding the growth of trade, while addressing the community impacts of goods movement and population growth.

The transportation projects and initiatives proposed as part of Greater Vancouver Gateway 2030 will provide national, provincial, regional, and local benefits. By removing capacity constraints and freight bottlenecks to get Canadian goods to market, these projects will help grow the economy, create well-paying jobs and support liveable, green communities with improvements to safety, mobility, and air quality.


The proposed Greater Vancouver Gateway 2030 projects reinforce the following pillars of the Government of Canada’s Transportation 2030 strategic plan: trade and transportation, public transit, green, and social.
