In the spirit of respect, Trans Mountain honours and acknowledges the shared territories of the Coast Salish peoples, the Nuu-chah-nulth people and the many Indigenous communities of the Salish Sea and Juan de Fuca Strait, located in Canada and the United States. These communities continue unique cultural practices as well as steward and protect the Salish Sea ecosystem, including the shorelines, the ocean and its watersheds.

Trans Mountain’s Westridge Marine Terminal is located on Burrard Inlet in Burnaby, British Columbia. The coastal waterways of BC are significant shared cultural and economic routes used by both recreational and commercial vessel traffic, including deep-sea ships travelling to and from the Port of Vancouver. Vessels from offshore navigate the commercial shipping lanes to reach our terminal in Burrard Inlet.

On any given day, seafarers and waterway stewards may encounter container ships, bulk carriers, oil tankers and other deep-sea vessels transiting in the designated marine shipping lanes through Burrard Inlet, the Strait of Georgia, Haro and Boundary Straits and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Given this busy maritime environment, marine safety is a critical concern.
