SUSTAINABILITY IN ACTION

Metro Vancouver’s core services, which are provided principally to municipalities, are the provision of drinking water, sewerage and drainage, and solid waste management. Regional parks and affordable housing are significant services provided directly to the public.

In addition to the utility services provided, the Metro Vancouver also provides emergency services, such as access to police, fire and ambulance services through the 9-1-1 call centre.

Metro Vancouver Sustainability Framework - Articulates Vision, Charts Course for The Region

The Sustainability Framework provides insight to Metro Vancouver’s operational and planning philosophy in its three primary roles – service delivery (primarily the water, sewage and solid waste utilities); plans, policies and regulations (regional growth, air quality, liquid and solid waste, drinking water, parks and greenways management plans, for example), and; political leadership (through outreach, advocacy and educational activities).

In addition to a broad vision and set of principles, the framework also describes the organization, how decisions are made, and a set of evolving strategies, priorities and actions towards a sustainable Metro Vancouver.
