Citizen involvement

Vancouver citizens have a long tradition of participating in city government and community affairs. It's one of the reasons why Vancouver has been ranked one of the best places in the world to live.

Public involvement is a vital part of the democratic process. Both City Council and the Park Board make it a priority to be accessible to all citizens.
