Economic Recovery: Shared Investments in Critical Infrastructure
October 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
As the regional body responsible for providing critical services to 2.7 million residents – more than half the population of B.C. – Metro Vancouver represents 61 percent of B.C.’s GDP and about 1.3 million jobs.
Over the next five years, Metro Vancouver is planning more than $6 billion in critical infrastructure investments to build, maintain and upgrade the infrastructure that underlies the prosperity and livability of the region.
In addition to providing essential services such as drinking water, liquid waste treatment and solid waste management, Metro Vancouver is steward to over a quarter of the region’s land base. This includes operating a regional park system of over 13,700 hectares and protecting over 59,000 hectares of forested water supply lands.
Metro Vancouver is also one of the largest affordable housing providers in the region, and is responsible for air quality monitoring and regional planning, including Metro 2050, a strong and effective tool representing the regional federation’s collective vision for livability and managing anticipated growth.
Join Metro Vancouver Board Chair Sav Dhaliwal and a panel of Metro Vancouver Mayors as they look toward recovery and setting the foundation for a future that is greener, resilient, more equitable and more sustainable.
