Intersection lit by street lights at night

Outdoor Lighting Strategy

Lighting helps make our streets safe for all road users, enhances our public spaces, and helps us to enjoy our city at night. To meet the needs of residents and businesses, we are developing an Outdoor Lighting Strategy for Vancouver. 

The strategy will provide direction on outdoor lighting on streets, public spaces, and private properties across the city. It is meant to:

  • Improve public safety
  • Provide accessible and inviting outdoor spaces
  • Reduce light pollution 
  • Reduce energy usage and cost
  • Minimize ecological impacts

Why an Outdoor Lighting Strategy?
