What if, together, we could ensure a Vancouver where future generations thrive?
Over the next three years we are asking for your help in creating the Vancouver we want and need. Together, let’s create a new Vancouver Plan, one that puts you at the heart of our priorities for the present and future.
Join us in Planning Vancouver Together.
This plan starts by listening to what matters most to you.
What should we think about as we begin this process?
On November 14 2019, we started our planning process by asking questions to understand the challenges and priorities of our residents.
To date, we heard the hopes, concerns and aspirations of over 10,000 residents, employees, business owners and visitors as part of this initial phase.
Your valuable thoughts will soon guide our next phase of conversations on The Future We Want.
Planning for the future.
Planning Vancouver Together will be an intensely engaging process to develop a long-term, strategic vision and actionable Vancouver Plan – a plan that enables individuals, communities, and future generations to thrive.
The Vancouver Plan will ultimately set directions to guide future priorities into 2050 and beyond.
Acknowledging the unceded homeland of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
Vancouver is fortunate to be located in a remarkable natural setting. This amazing place that has drawn diverse and creative people from around the globe is the unceded ancestral homelands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ / sel’íl’witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples, and has been traditionally stewarded by them since time immemorial.
Recognizing the lives, cultures, languages, and peoples of this land, the process of Planning Vancouver Together seeks to build on our commitment as a City of Reconciliation. Through the Vancouver Plan, we hope to establish collaborative partnerships with each of the three host Nations to ensure we move forward together toward a city truly worthy of this amazing place.

What will the Vancouver Plan do?
This Plan is intended to shape the future of our City to 2050 and beyond. While it will not be a detailed instruction book, the Plan will be a tool that helps prioritize future decisions and sets directions for the city we want to become.
It will guide how we govern, how we invest, and how we work across boundaries to build a city where current and future generations can thrive.
