Metro 2050 Vision

Metro Vancouver is a region of diverse and complete communities connected by sustainable transportation choices where residents take pride in vibrant neighbourhoods that offer a range of opportunities to live, work, play, and learn, and where natural, agricultural, and employment lands are protected and enhanced.

Shaping long-term growth and development in the region is essential to meeting this vision in a way that protects the natural environment, fosters community well-being, fuels economic prosperity, provides local food security, improves social equity, provides diverse and affordable housing choices, ensures the efficient provision of utilities and transit, reduces greenhouse gasses, and contributes to resiliency to climate change impacts and natural hazards.

  • Engagement Approach

    The update to the regional growth strategy constituted a Type 1 Major Amendment, requiring acceptance by all affected local governments including the Metro Vancouver Board, member jurisdictions, TransLink, the Fraser Valley Regional District and the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District. As with previous regional growth strategies, Metro 2050 is a consensus-driven plan among member jurisdictions, TransLink and Metro Vancouver.

    Metro Vancouver is committed to working in close collaboration with member jurisdictions and others throughout the update. The engagement approach identified the following audiences for engagement: strategy signatories (e.g. municipalities), non-signatory stakeholders (e.g. other regional agencies), First Nations and the general public.

  • Intergovernmental Advisory Committee

    In accordance with the Local Government Act, Metro Vancouver established an Intergovernmental Advisory Committee including Metro Vancouver, member municipalities, TransLink's, representatives from the provincial government and its agency corporations. In region First Nations are also invited to join this committee. The role of the committee is to advise affected local governments on the development and implementation of Metro 2050, and facilitate the coordination of Provincial and local government actions, policies and programs.

  • Engagement in Phase 1
    • Metro Vancouver partnered with TransLink on a public survey to better understand the values and priorities in the region. Read more about Transport 2050.
    • Metro Vancouver hosted public dialogues and a webinar to hear ideas and answer questions. View the webinar presentation.
    • The project team engaged with numerous organizations in developing the draft and the highlights are contained in the Metro 2050 Phase 1 Engagement Report.
