Ports in Proximity, Proximity in Ports: Towards a Typology
This chapter illustrates the complexity of gateway-corridor development, uses Canada as an example. The term 'gateway' has been applied in town planning, retail and residential development, tourism planning and trade facilitation. The Canadian case of gateway-corridor development is an example of multiple gateways on different coastal ranges competing for infrastructure support in the gateways and in the transportation corridors linking to the main hinterland. The Federal government of Canada has recently initiated a public policy entitled National Policy Framework for Strategic Gateways and Trade Corridors. The Asia-Pacific Gateway as a formal designation had its roots in the creation of the Greater Vancouver Gateway Council (GVGC) in 1994. In October 2005 the Federal government introduced the Pacific Gateway Act with the intent that the legislation would establish policy and a governance foundation through the creation of a Pacific Gateway Council to bring about what the GVGC had been espousing for over 10 years.
