The Vancouver City Planning Commission is an advisory body of volunteers appointed by Council with a broad mandate to consider and advise Council on matters relating to the future of Vancouver.

The Commission carries out this mandate through special projects on relevant issues, and by selecting specific matters on Council’s agenda on which to provide comment during Council’s deliberations.

In carrying out this work, the Commission organizes conferences, consultations, competitions, presentations and research on a variety of topics including housing, the public realm, transportation, public engagement and neighbourhoods.
