Welcome to ACPA 2017

The Association of Canadian Port Authorities, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority and all of us at the Port of Vancouver look forward to welcoming Canada's port industry to ACPA 2017. "Navigating a sustainable Future," the 59th ACPA Annual Conference and General Meeting taking place September 18-20 in Vancouver. 

ACPA 2017 will bring together professionals and key decision makers from across Canada to discuss port and trade topics and issues. Speakers will address the challenges in achieving sustainable port operations, with an emphasis on economic, environmental and social themes as they relate to Canada's ports and shipping community. Taking place at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel, the conference will be a place to connect, providing networking opportunities with key stakeholders and decision - makers in attendance.

As a cosmopolitan city, right at the edge of nature, Vancouver makes it easy to combine an urban getaway with outdoor adventure. From family-friendly fun to thrill-seeking exploits, marine exploring to mountaintop luxury, you'll find plenty of things to do in this port city. As the largest port in Canada, and the largest export port in North America, the Port of Vancouver is home to 27 major marine cargo terminals and three Class 1 railroads, offering a full range of facilities and services to the international shipping community.

Join us in September at ACPA 2017, “Navigating a Sustainable Future.”
