The Port of Vancouver is about the same size as the next five largest Canadian ports combined. Home to 27 major terminals, the port is able to handle the most diversified range of cargo in North America: bulk, containers, breakbulk, liquid bulk, automobiles and cruise. As the country's gateway of over 170 trading economies around the world, the port handles $1 of every $3 of Canada's trade in goods outside of North America.
