Launch of PortTV

Port Metro Vancouver welcomes audiences behind-the-scenes of Canada’s largest port with its new online channel, PortTV. Designed to engage and educate audiences, PortTV will share the stories of real people who live and work within the port communities and showcase the important role that the port plays across Canada. Hosted on Port Metro Vancouver’s YouTube and Facebook pages, new episodes of PortTV will be rolled out weekly throughout the summer.

Check out the first episode Port Metro Vancouver's website.

 “We consistently receive feedback that people would like to know more about Port Metro Vancouver. PortTV is our exciting new initiative that allows us to get out into the community and have some fun talking to people about what we do and the day-to-day impact of the port,” says Evangeline Englezos, ‎Director, Community & Aboriginal Affairs, Port Metro Vancouver. “PortTV will take audiences inside the diverse world of Port Metro Vancouver, introduce them to some of the people who work within our community, and have some fun with people across the Lower Mainland as we challenge them to see the port in a new way.”

Currently airing two different series, People of the Port and Port Pop Quiz, PortTV will release new episodes each Tuesday from June until September.
