Chronology of Planning and Development

Milestones in Vancouver’s Planning and Development History: A Chronology

The background material for the Commission’s dialogues and other special events often includes a list of significant events in the history of planning and development of the city. In 2014, the Commission initiated a project to substantially improve existing lists with a chronology of milestones that is comprehensive, reliable and informative. One of our partners in this project is the UBC School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, which created a course on Vancouver’s planning and development history in which students identified milestones up to 2014. These were entered into an online timeline which was launched in January 2016.
