Metro Vancouver’s Regional Growth Strategy

The RGS sets planning trajectories for the region in terms of land use, transportation, the economy, agriculture, and more.  All municipalities (and UBC) must include a regional context statement within their Official Community Plans which explain how they will attribute to the region’s goals and directives. The RGS is in draft format.
