The proposed amendment 

The permit holder, Western Canada Marine Response Corporation, has requested an additional extension to the expiry date of the approved project permit (PER No. 16-290) to complete the installation of their modular office building. The request is limited to upland works and is intended to align the project schedule with other construction projects in the area. The original permit approved the construction of an oil spill emergency response base at 2800 Commissioner Street, Vancouver. 

The approved works are comprised of marine piles and floats, riparian shore protection, two upland buildings and site services, and a paved parking area. This extension would allow the works to occur up to July 31, 2023.
