Title: Employment Lands and Economy Review: Roadshow Presentation
We’re developing a long-range land use policy plan to ensure we have an appropriate supply of land for businesses and jobs to support the future growth of our economy.
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.
The Employment Lands and Economy Review will examine all of Vancouver’s employment sectors across the city, including office, commercial, retail, and industrial uses. It will build on Vancouver’s strengths and look at issues such as the intensification and densification of our employment lands.
As part of this study, we are looking to engage with different sectors in Vancouver’s business community to get a better understanding of emerging trends associated with the changing nature of work, demand for job space (office/industrial/retail/institutional etc.), and how Vancouver’s different economic sectors are planning for this uncertain future.
