Metro Vancouver is responsible for developing, implementing, and stewarding the Regional Growth Strategy, Metro 2040: Shaping Our Future. This long-range plan strives to manage anticipated growth to the region. It was co-created and supported by all municipalities in the region, as well as TransLink. Regional Planning is also guided by the Board Strategic Plan.

Regional Planning analyzes and communicates data, conducts policy research to support and guide decision making, convenes stakeholders on planning issues of common interest, advocates to other levels of government, and acts as a planning resource for municipalities and others. Regional Planning aspires to provide leadership and innovation by looking at best practices and tools around the world and finding innovative ways to use them in our region.
