Metro Vancouver Name Change

Metro Vancouver is proposing to change the legal names of three of the corporate entities it operates  – the Greater Vancouver Regional District, the Greater Vancouver Water District, and the Greater Vancouver Sewerage and Drainage District – to the Metro Vancouver Regional District, the Metro Vancouver Water District, and the Metro Vancouver Sewerage and Drainage District.

This change will align the legal names of those corporate entities with the trade name – "Metro Vancouver" – that has been used for over 9 years.

The change will also help reduce any public confusion between the trade name "Metro Vancouver" and the legal entities. 

For more information about this proposed name change, please contact Metro Vancouver at:
