Why it's important to the region
Metro Vancouver will continue to grow by about 35,000 people every year – that’s about 100 people per day. Directing that growth to a compact urban area, the Urban Containment Boundary, helps to lower utility and infrastructure capital costs, protect important lands, and create vibrant communities with jobs, services, and amenities close to home.
