Administrative history

The British Columbia Wharf Operators' Association was formed prior to World War II by wharf owners throughout the province. The Association later became a member of the Vancouver Merchants' Exchange. The Association promotes cooperation among members and the interests of persons and corporations in British Columbia who own and operate wharves, acts as an exchange for information on the industry for members, studies problems related to the business of wharf operation, assists governments in the development, protection and preservation of harbour facilities and installations, conducts labour relations for the industry, assists members to secure an adequate supply of labour, and promotes standards of business ethics among persons and corporations engaged in the business of wharf operations.
