The future is not something that just happens to us, but something we can create together.

Help the Vancouver Park Board and City of Vancouver imagine the future of the parks, beaches, and connections to and through the areas that make up the West End Waterfront, commonly known as English Bay, Sunset Beach Park and Beach Ave.

This stretch of shoreline is located on the unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam Indian Band), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish Nation) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation) and represents a place of great cultural, spiritual and ecological significance. It is also a key amenity for the many Vancouver urban Indigenous residents living far away from their homelands.

The project planning process will uphold and build on the many Reconciliation commitments made by the City of Vancouver and the Vancouver Park Board. The following principles and practices will be integrated throughout the project:

  • Prioritize mutual respect, strengthened partnerships, and economic empowerment
  • Promote cultural competency, strengthened relations and effective decision-making
  • Ensure an Indigenous-led preservation, revitalization and strengthening of Indigenous languages and cultures
  • Uphold an intergovernmental approach to stewardship of Host Nations lands
  • Ensure urban Indigenous input is integrated
