NEFC launch event

Get involved and provide feedback about Northeast False Creek

Northeast False Creek will be a destination for people from all over Vancouver, and we want your help creating an area plan that guides development.

Over the past year, thousands of residents have participated in events, online surveys, and provided feedback.

There's still time for you to add your voice! This summer and fall, we will be sharing draft plans for you to consider and share your views.

We commit to listening to your input, showing you what we heard, and highlighting how we were able to integrate that feedback into the area plan.
