The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority’s Habitat Enhancement Program is working to enhance fish and wildlife habitat at a marine site immediately south of the Maplewood Flats Conservation Area in the District of North Vancouver, B.C. The proposed Maplewood Marine Restoration Project would enhance approximately seven hectares of lower-value marine habitat into higher-value intertidal, eelgrass and subtidal rock reef habitat.

 

As part of this public consultation, the Habitat Enhancement Program will provide Project information and seek feedback regarding notification methods for construction and project updates and a proposed ecological or cultural feature. The input provided will be considered as part of the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority’s Project and Environmental Review (PER) process. For more information about PER, please visit https://www.portvancouver.com/development-and-permits/project-and-environmental-reviews/

Input gathered during public consultation, along with technical and financial information, and information provided by Aboriginal groups and stakeholders, will be considered to inform further project design and will be reviewed as part of the port authority’s PER process of this proposed project.
