Metro Vancouver 2040

In 2011, Metro Vancouver adopted a new Regional Growth Strategy titled Metro Vancouver 2040 - Shaping our Future. The purpose of the strategy is to manage population expansion while advancing livability and sustainability – a shared commitment by Metro Vancouver and its member municipalities. Key to this strategy is the integration of land use and transportation initiatives. Click here to visit the  Regional Growth Strategy website.

What is a Regional Context Statement?

A Regional Context Statement (RCS) is a policy tool that demonstrates how a City's Official Community Plan (OCP) aligns with Regional Growth Strategies. Every Metro Vancouver municipality is required to include a Regional Context Statement in their OCP.
