Resilient Vancouver

Resilient Vancouver is a citywide strategy that looks at the challenges facing our city - now and in the future - and makes recommendations on how to build our capacity for dealing with them.

Such challenges may include the impacts of climate change, sea level rise, earthquakes and extreme weather, which are intensified by social and economic inequity, aging infrastructure, and the affordability crisis. 

It is the result of a two-year process involving more than 2,500 stakeholders. 

The framework for the strategy was presented to Council in April, and the full strategy and actions will be finalized later this year.

Guiding principles

Through input from stakeholders, we developed a set of guiding principles that provide a framework for the Resilient Vancouver strategy.
