Get involved and provide feedback about Northeast False Creek

The Northeast False Creek will be a destination for people from all over Vancouver, and we want your help. Participate in events, online surveys, and provide feedback as we develop an area plan to guide the development of this new district. 

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.
