Pacific region

Transport Canada provides a range of programs and services in the Pacific Region through its offices in Vancouver and through its network of Transport Canada Centres throughout the region.

Transport Canada's Pacific Region is the province of British Columbia. Known as Canada's gateway to the Pacific, British Columbia is home to Vancouver International Airport and the Port Metro Vancouver — the second busiest airport in Canada and the largest and most diversified port in the country, respectively. Our location also benefits both the trucking and rail transportation industries, as most of the goods being shipped through the province, to or from the rest of Canada, are carried on trucks or by train.

This section contains information on the department's role in the Pacific Region, our programs, activities and services as well as a brief overview of the transportation industry in British Columbia.
