Metro Vancouver approves Board Strategic Plan

Metro Vancouver approves Board Strategic Plan

Metro Vancouver has approved its 2019-2022 Board Strategic Plan, which includes themes such as resiliency, climate action and innovation.

The Plan is the outcome of a workshop held in April that was attended by almost all Board members and provides strategic directions for each of the organization’s functions. The workshop provided an opportunity for the Chair, Vice-Chair, and the Board to share ideas and insights as well as to clarify priorities for the next four years.

The plan was informed by the long-term planning underway at Metro Vancouver that anticipates several factors, including a growing population, climate change, and the need to maintain and upgrade existing infrastructure.

The plan aims to help us sufficiently maintain our infrastructure so it’s resilient to impacts from seismic events, natural disasters and the effects of climate change and leveraging opportunities within our operations for energy, resource recovery, and greenhouse gas reduction.

The 2019-2022 Board Strategic Plan will provide guidance to Metro Vancouver staff in their work and planning. The directions from the Board Strategic Plan will influence the 30-Year Financial Framework, which will be presented to the Board this fall.
