The Port of Vancouver’s cruise terminal at Canada Place welcomes upwards of 900,000 passengers each year as the homeport for many of the Alaska cruises.
The three-berth terminal can service up to four luxury cruise ships at one time. The terminal is owned and operated by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority. Each cruise ship that docks in Vancouver contributes approximately $2 million to the local economy.
In 2009, a shore power initiative was completed enabling cruise ships to connect to the shore-based electrical grid while docked. This significant environmental initiative is the first installation of this type in Canada, and only the third in the world.
