Vancouver workers invited to share their views on opportunities and challenges of being employed in the city

March 27 2019 –

Vancouver's work force is invited to play a role in creating a plan to ensure our city has the right supply of land and business space to support jobs and the future economy.

Employment Lands and Economy Review

As part of the City's Employment Lands and Economy Review, a survey has been launched to gather insight from people who work in Vancouver. Survey questions range from general employment status and field of work to whether workers feel they have opportunities in their fields or adequate work space.

The data collected will feed into a greater understanding of the current opportunities and challenges for workers in Vancouver and will inform future land use policies aimed at supporting business and job growth.

The Employment Lands and Economy Review has also reached out to business owners and operators across the city through a survey and stakeholder meetings to hear about their experiences running a business in Vancouver, space preferences, and challenges.

Tell us about your experiences

The worker survey and business survey are both available online until April 22, 2019.

Take the surveys

The Employment Lands and Economy Review will develop a long-range land use policy plan to ensure Vancouver has an appropriate supply of land for businesses and jobs to support economic growth.

The review is examining all of Vancouver's employment sectors across the city, including office, commercial, retail, and industrial uses, and looking at Vancouver's strengths and issues such as the intensification and densification of our employment lands. The review will also coordinate with the citywide planning program and other related initiatives.
