Regional Planning 
Metro Vancouver’s population is currently 2.4 million, and we anticipate another 1 million people by 2041. As a result, we also anticipate an additional 500,000 jobs. Regional Planning develops and implements long-range land use and transportation policies that: direct this anticipated growth to Urban Centres and along frequent transit corridors; establish and maintain a strong urban containment boundary; support a strong and diverse economy; and vibrant complete communities; and protect the region’s vital industrial, agricultural and conservation lands.

Regional Growth Strategy 

The primary tool for Regional Planning is Metro Vancouver 2040: Shaping our Future, the region’s Regional Growth Strategy, which establishes land use policies to guide the future development of the region and support the efficient provision of transportation, regional infrastructure and community services. Metro Vancouver’s Regional Growth Strategy can help meet the region’s priorities and mandates and support our long-term commitment to sustainability. It was developed in collaboration with Metro Vancouver’s member municipalities and other partners.
