Metro Vancouver’s Regional Growth Strategy Meetings

Metro Vancouver’s Regional Growth Strategy (Metro Vancouver 2040: Shaping Our Future) is a framework to guide the future development of our region to 2040. It is a shared commitment by Metro Vancouver and member municipalities to work together to achieve regional goals. The Regional Growth Strategy is an important tool for managing future growth in the region, while still ensuring its livability. Following the adoption of the new Regional Growth Strategy, New Westminster’s Official Community Plan will need to be reviewed to take into account the new regional policies.
