Vancouver Plan survey

From April 5 to April 27 we presented the draft Vancouver Plan for public feedback through an online survey available in eight languages.
Thank you to everyone who took time to provide input. We are now summarizing the results and we will report back the findings in May.
Your feedback will be shared with City Council as part of their decision on the Vancouver Plan in June 2022, with more detailed input to be considered as part of the Plan’s future implementation.

How did we get here?

The draft Vancouver Plan is the culmination of direction from City Council and two years of community engagement.

Over the past two years of engagement, you’ve told us that you want an actionable plan for a city that is inclusive, diverse, and works for everyone.
