Join TalkVancouver and win a mini City Hall

December 12 2016 Be part of the conversation about your City in 2017!

Want to keep up-to-date on our latest initiatives? Participate in consultations online where you can voice your ideas and views on things that are important to you? And win a mini Vancouver City Hall for participating?

If you answered yes and want to help build a better Vancouver, join TalkVancouver, our online space for civic participation and engagement.

We invite you to be part of the TalkVancouver community and, as a thank you, offer you a chance to win a mini Vancouver City Hall. It's the season of giving and if you join TalkVancouver between December 12 and 23, you could win one of 25 limited edition mini Vancouver City Halls. The Vancouver Lego Club helped us put together a package of pieces to build your own City Hall. They're a perfect gift for the holidays or just a fun keepsake for yourself.

If you're already a TalkVancouver member, we haven't forgotten you. We really appreciate your time and input – another 25 mini Vancouver City Halls are up for grabs, just for panel members who enter to win the prize.

Enter the draw

You can only win a mini City Hall by being a member of TalkVancouver.com - where we invite citizens online to weigh in on City projects.

There will be two draws for winners taking place during the contest period: one on December 16, and one on December 23.

To be eligible for the first draw on December 16, you must enter before noon that day.

Share your views on TalkVancouver

TalkVancouver is your direct, personal connection to City Hall. It is a safe, online space where you can quickly and easily share your insights with us on the important issues that affect you and our city.

TalkVancouver is made up of more than 12,000 panelists, who get an email any time their input is needed on a relevant project. Typically panelists answer surveys, but the panel also forms a pool that we can draw on for focus groups and other engagement methods. TalkVancouver surveys can be done on your computer and mobile device at any time that's convenient for you.

In 2016 alone, we conducted more than 50 surveys through TalkVancouver and received more than 90,000 responses from the public, providing input into initiatives ranging from the annual budget and empty homes tax to strategic plans and playground renewals in parks.

We care about engaging with the public and – through tools like TalkVancouver and the mini City Hall promotion – are continually exploring innovative and convenient ways to ensure the public can weigh in on City decisions.
