Reminder to Submit Feedback into the B.C. Coastal Ferries Consultation and Engagement by December 21, 2012.

The B.C. coastal ferry service has been wrestling with cost pressures for more than 20 years. These cost pressures, if not addressed, could threaten the financial sustainability of the entire system.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has embarked upon a province-wide consultation and engagement to provide information on the depth and nature of the challenges and invite British Columbians to provide input on two areas under consideration:

Immediate Challenge: The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, working with BC Ferries, has identified considerations to achieve $26 million in savings to 2016. The first part of this consultation and engagement seeks feedback on the considerations.

Long-Term Vision: The second part of this consultation and engagement invites feedback on what elements should be pursued to connect coastal communities in an affordable, efficient and sustainable manner in the long-term.
