Virtual neighbourhood workshops
Following the survey in September 2020, the City is holding online neighbourhood workshops in communities that contain a number of apartments where the changes would apply.
The purpose of these virtual neighbourhood workshops is to provide an overview of non-profit housing in Vancouver, the zoning changes being considered, and hear feedback on the proposals and how they relate to different neighbourhoods.
Each workshop will consist of a staff presentation and small group discussions between participants.
How to get involved
All online neighbourhood workshops will be hosted by the City on Cisco WebEx. To register, please click on the Eventbrite link and follow the registration instructions.

There will be 50 spaces available for each session. To ensure a diversity of perspectives, 25 spaces will be reserved for individuals who own their home and 25 spaces will be reserved for individuals living in rental or co-op housing.
Registration is open to all and is not limited to those who live in the area. We encourage anyone who is interested in non-profit housing in these areas to register and attend.
As the number of spaces is limited for these workshops, registration will be limited to one session per person. We also ask that individuals only register if they intend on attending the workshop, and unregister if plans change and you are unable to attend. If space for the workshop is filled but you would like to attend, please sign up for the waitlist through the Eventbrite link.

If you can’t make it to one of our neighbourhood workshops, there will also be an opportunity to review staff’s presentation materials and provide comments online from November 16th – December 7th. More details will be available on this webpage in the coming weeks.
