City of Vancouver corporate plan

Fostering a livable, safe and vibrant city is the foundation of our work at the City of Vancouver.

Each year, the Corporate Plan helps us map out priority initiatives that will enable us to address the opportunities and challenges we experience as a growing city. Our annual Corporate Plan sets out our organization’s highest priorities for the year ahead.

Our senior executive, the City Leadership Team, uses the plan to ensure that we:

  • Deliver Council priorities and regulatory obligations
  • Meet our core service responsibilities
  • Continually improve how we deliver high quality services and programs

The Corporate Plan also helps our staff focus on key priorities and understand how their work fits into the larger picture of our overall long-term goals.
