For good reason, more than 600,000 people call it home, and even more enjoy and rely on the services our City provides.
But a great city doesn't happen by accident. It happens by design.

Along with its key partner Vancouver Coastal Health, the City is developing a long-term strategy for healthier people and places, and a healthier planet.
