Social Policy: research and data toward a healthy city for all

Social planning in Vancouver—working toward a healthy, equitable, socially sustainable city for all—relies on a strong foundation of research and data. We use a number of different data sources to understand how change happens in the city, and how it is experienced by different individuals and groups. We work with community partners to share information, build capacity, and foster ongoing conversations about the future of the city.
