The Pier & Boating Safety

The City encourages people from the local and boating communities to safely enjoy their time on the waterfront. Whether you are strolling along the promenade, docking your vessel or out on the water, please be courteous and mindful of others who are also enjoying the Pier.

For your convenience, the City has compiled a list of Moorage Rules, which are in place to ensure the safety of pedestrians and other boat operators. If you would like further information, please contact Larry Orr at 604-982-3913 or
