Event description

Description

This panel conversation event will focus on the future of employment in Metro Vancouver, and planning for the employment lands that support the regional economy. What are the trends and issues related to employment in various sectors in Metro Vancouver, and how does land use planning, regulation, and market demand affect the future of work regionally? How will we thrive in this changing regional economy?


Panelists will provide brief presentations on emerging trends which will be followed with an in-depth audience question and answer period, and table discussions. Staff from the City of Vancouver will be on hand to absorb your input to guide future policy and planning decisions related to employment and industry planning in Metro Vancouver.
