We’re reaching out to all those who live, work and play in Vancouver to help shape ‘Complete Neighbourhoods’: a strong network of unique, connected places across the city.

A Complete Neighbourhood has all of your essential needs within close proximity to one another, and supports the needs of all residents in a community, regardless of income, culture, background or abilities. Think: diverse housing options, a mix of shops and services, alongside childcare facilities, libraries, galleries and recreation centres – linked by lively pathways, parks and plazas.

Creating “Complete, Connected, and Culturally Vibrant Neighbourhoods” is a key goal of the City’s strategic Vancouver Plan: a long-term, strategic vision for the future of the city that will guide how we grow, invest, govern, and work to build a city where current and future generations can thrive.

We know that as the city has grown, it has started to feel less ‘complete’ – more sprawled, less walkable, and with fewer community hubs. Planning for complete neighbourhoods is an opportunity to strengthen all areas of the city – for the benefit of everyone. Join the discussion by participating in a dialogue session, taking a self-guided walking tour, or attending one of our upcoming online workshops and make your mark on creating long-lasting change in your community, and beyond.
