Global Container Terminals (GCT) is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a community open house this Saturday (June 25) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This year marks GCT Canada’s 25th year as a member of the Delta community and its 115th year of operations on the BC Waterfront. GCT Deltaport is honoured to operate within the traditional territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, and in particular, the traditional and treaty territory of the Tsawwassen First Nation and Musqueam Indian Band.
The open house will include entertainment and education, as well as a rare look inside how GCT Deltaport supports Delta and Canada as a whole.
The formal program will open with a traditional welcome at 10:45 a.m. and GCT will also recognize the International Day of the Seafarer and thank those seafarers for their service.
Additionally, there will be tours of the terminal, opportunities to view the largest fully electrified on-dock rail yard in North America and meet with engineers and operations teams to learn more about our equipment and how we operate.
Live entertainment will be on the stage all afternoon, and numerous GCT’s community and supply chain partners will have booths showcasing their activities.
As a free family event, there will also be a kid’s zone with activities with Delta Gymnastics, bouncy castles, crafts and colouring, a complimentary hot dog barbecue and a celebration cake.
A charity raffle for KidSport Delta is running now through the end of the open house. The winner will receive a brand-new Boomerang e-bike furnished by GCT Canada and Pedego Delta valued at over $4,000!
“The goal of this event is to show our gratitude to employees, workforce, and our local neighbours for supporting GCT Canada’s operations in Delta for over 25 years and in Vancouver for over 100 years,” said GCT Canada president Eric Waltz. “We’re proud to be a community-focused, locally headquartered, and Canadian-owned organization, and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve been doing at Deltaport to be a leader in sustainability and innovation.”
Online registration is requested in advance through https://globalterminals.com/dp25/.
