Metro 2040 Update
As of April 2019, Metro Vancouver is updating Metro 2040: Shaping our Future, the regional growth strategy. The update is being undertaken to consider significant drivers of change, integrate with Transport 2050 (Translink’s new Regional Transportation Strategy), and implement policy improvements. Metro Vancouver is committed to working in close collaboration with member jurisdictions, TransLink, the Province, adjacent regional districts, and other regional agencies throughout the update to Metro 2040. The updated strategy, anticipated to be complete in 2022, will be called Metro 2050. More information here.
Metro Vancouver 2040: Shaping Our Future (Metro 2040)
Metro Vancouver 2040: Shaping our Future, the regional growth strategy, represents the collective vision for how our region is going to accommodate the 1 million people and over 500,000 jobs that are expected to come to the region in the next 25 years.
Metro 2040 was unanimously adopted in 2011 by 21 municipalities, TransLink and adjacent regional districts. It contains strategies to advance five goals related to urban development, the regional economy, the environment and climate change, housing and community amenities, and integrating land use and transportation.
