Canadian West Coast Port Updates

blog | Jul 20, 2023

The union representing port workers in British Columbia withdrew plans to resume their strike this weekend.  

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union Canada said in a statement on Wednesday, July 19, that it has withdrawn the 72-hour strike notice it issued earlier that day, but gave no reasons or details behind the decision.  

This demonstrates that this continues to be an unpredictable situation in Vancouver and Prince Rupert, two of Canada’s busiest ports.  

In an effort to keep movement of cargo as fluid as possible, Delmar will continue to retain its current policies until further notice.  

Further updates will be provided as events unfold. Meanwhile, we remain hopeful that this situation will be fully resolved in a timely manner.  


For additional information and assistance, please contact your local Delmar Representative.
