The aim of the A/B Jetty project is to demolish and
replace the old ‘’A’’ and ‘’B’’ jetties at CFB Esquimalt’s
Dockyard, which were constructed during World War
II. The A/B Jetty project supports Canada’s National
Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy, which is delivering
modern ships to the Royal Canadian Navy over the next
30 years. The new fully integrated A/B Jetty facility will
be home to several of these Canadian-built vessels,
including the new Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship and Joint
Support Ship, and in due course the future Canadian
Surface Combatant ships. The implementation of this
$1.1 billion project has been advancing steadily over
the past decade and it currently involves three primary
contracts: one for the design & engineering work of the
new “B” Jetty, one for the design & engineering work of
the new “A” Jetty and one for the construction of the new

The North Shore Wastewater Treatment Plant is a new
tertiary treatment facility being built to replace the existing
primary level Lions Gate Wastewater Treatment Plant on
the North Shore.
The facility will feature an enclosed design and robust
odour control system to prevent odour from reaching neighbouring residents and businesses, will recover heat for use
in a nearby district energy system, and will include a public
plaza, education, and community meeting spaces. Construction officially began in late August 2018. In 2019, the decision was made to move from secondary to tertiary treatment
technology. In 2022, Metro Vancouver and PCL Constructors
Westcoast Inc signed a pre-construction services contract to
take the next steps to complete the North Shore Wastewater
Treatment Plant and to create an updated plan to complete
the project, including developing a revised project budget
and schedule that is anticipated for 2023.
