West

West controls all altitudes west of 124W except for the terminal airspace. They primarily handle north/south traffic between Alaska and Seattle ARTCC's, but also are seeing increasing numbers of long-range aircraft going to and from the Pacific ocean to points in the USA. They are responsible for the airport service on Vancouver Island and the northern coast of BC.

This specialty does all the arrival sequencing for arrivals from the east and converts departing eastbound and northbound aircraft from the departure vectors to the on-course portion of the flight.

Vancouver North

Vancouver North sector handles the arrival/departure separation for YVR traffic to/from northern BC, northern Canada and Europe as well as departures to Edmonton. Due to the size of this sector and blocking by mountains, this sector could not be operated on one frequency. Rather than have aircraft switch frequencies in mid-sector, a switch was installed to allow the controller to select which transmitter to use depending on the location and altitude of the aircraft receiving the message. Both receivers operate simultaneously through a mixer circuit.
