Land-Use and Urban Form


The Metro Vancouver region is growing rapidly. Our population is increasing by 30,000 residents each year and it is anticipated that the regional population could reach 3.6 million people by the year 2050. The location of new homes, businesses and institutions strongly influences both greenhouse gas emissions and exposure to risks associated with climate change.​

Developing a roadmap

​Metro Vancouver is working with municipal jurisdictions, partners and other groups to develop a roadmap for land-use and growth management in this region.

​Through regional planning and coordination, Metro Vancouver can support residents, business and member jurisdictions in preparing for the changing climate. Through planning, design and investment, we’ll ensure Metro Vancouver’s operations and assets are resilient to the changing climate.

Land-u​se and urban form ​is one of Metro Vancouver’s ten Climate 2050 priorities.
