Major planning projects

The City focuses on creating liveable, sustainable, and affordable communities that emphasize walking, cycling, and mass transit.

Our emerging urban communities provide plenty of public spaces for neighbours to interact, to work, to shop, to play, and to learn.

Explore the many ongoing planning projects that are helping to solidify Vancouver's reputation as one of the most liveable cities in the world.
