Canada’s port of Vancouver has steadily re-established some of its key connections between the British Columbia interior and the West Coast, following severe flooding and mudslides in the region.

CP operated two trains on its mainline between Vancouver and Kamloops to enable engineering teams to perform full infrastructure inspections and undertake additional repairs. Regular train services started on November 23.  CN revised the estimated opening of its mainline service from November 24 to November 25.

Truck operations at all four container terminals remain steady. Reconstruction and repairs continue on major roadways impacted by flooding throughout the British Columbia interior. Restored highway routes include detours, intermittent closures and essential traffic-only restrictions.

For marine operations, anchorage demand remains high across all vessel types. 

The provincial state of emergency declared by British Columbia remains in place.
