Community Benefit Agreement compliance toolkit

The Community Benefit Agreement (CBA) compliance toolkit was developed in partnership with Buy Social Canada . These resources are meant to support developers and general contractors in complying with Vancouver’s CBA Policy. Typically, developers and general contractors will work with us through the tools in their project-specific working group.

The policy applies to both the build and operations phases of eligible development projects. Reporting requirements may vary between build and operations phases, reporting periods will be established on a project-by-project basis.
