Take the Employment Lands & Economy Survey

Posted on 23RD JANUARY 2019

The City of Vancouver is conducting a review of Vancouver’s employment lands and economy. This review will help develop a plan to ensure local businesses have enough land and floor space to support the growth of our economy.

As a business owner or operator in the city, you have valuable insight to contribute to this plan. You can provide input through a short, confidential survey where you can share characteristics of your business, your space preferences, and some of the challenges you may have experienced doing business in the city. The information and feedback collected will help the City develop recommendations for supporting Vancouver’s employment lands and our economic future.

Why now?

Vancouver has a limited supply of commercial and industrial land. Today, about half of all jobs in Vancouver are located on 10% of our land base. As the population continues to grow, our economy will need to keep pace. Understanding the current capacity of Vancouver’s employment lands, along with the future demand for job space, will be essential to ensuring a strong and diverse economy for future generations.

Take the survey at vancouver.ca/employment-lands . The survey is now open until April  2019.
