How can we create a post-pandemic Vancouver that is just, equitable, decolonized, and inclusive for all?
The Vancouver City Planning Commission (VCPC), with the support of SFU Public Square invites you to join a panel of current and past Commissioners who will discuss how the pandemic is impacting their communities, and what potential policy changes and opportunities they see in creating a post-pandemic Vancouver that is just, equitable, decolonized and inclusive for all.
To achieve a safe and inclusive city for residents of all cultures, incomes, ages, abilities, genders, and perspectives, issues of equity and the history of systematic exclusion of many communities and identities need to be addressed. Tangible action that goes beyond engagement and consultation to take action on the feedback already heard from Indigenous peoples, racialized communities, youth and other equity-seeking groups is now needed.
