Regional City Centres
There are seven other Regional City Centres found across Metro Vancouver that also serve as important activity hubs for transportation, employment and housing. These Centres provide good locations to distribute growth across the region while connecting to the larger Metro Centres.
Learn more about the characteristics and growth trends of the Regional City Centres in the Regional City Centre Profiles.
Municipal Town Centres
There are 17 designated Municipal Town Centres that are more local and serve as activity hubs for municipal populations. Some Municipal Town Centres are important transportation hubs for subregional and municipal populations and are all linked to the Frequent Transit Network.
Frequent Transit Development Areas
Frequent Transit Development Areas (FTDAs) are additional priority locations for accommodating concentrated growth in higher density forms of development. Urban design for these areas will also promote transit-oriented development where transit, cycling and walking are the preferred modes of transportation.
