Area designated Mixed Employment





<div class="ExternalClass4D49694DA1164C559771C5BA7CE99BF5"><p>Every parcel of land in the region has one of six regional land use designations (Agricultural, Conservation and Recreation, General Urban, Industrial, Mixed Employment, and Rural). The regional land use designations set out the intended uses, and what uses may not be appropriate, on these lands. The regional land use designations strike a balance by setting out the regional interest in land use while still allowing municipalities the flexibility to meet local land use objectives.</p><p>This indicator shows Mixed Employment areas within Metro Vancouver that are intended for industrial, commercial, and other employment-related uses that complement employment uses in Urban Centres and Frequent Transit Development Areas. Residential uses are not intended.</p></div>Area Designated Mixed Employment

The 2018 corporate performance objective in the annual work plan is no net loss in hectares of land in comparison to 2017. There is no target in Metro 2040 for this measure.​ More information about Metro 2040 amendments can be found here.

Historical benchmark/baseline (2011): 3,394 hectares of land with a Metro 2040 Mixed Employment Designation. ​
