Upgrading Community Services

A liveable city is one that supports its people by providing the community services that they need, when they need them. Vancouverites are struggling under the weight of our affordability crisis. Our city government should be responsive to the day to day cost of living challenges our residents are facing and explore creative solutions for how our parks and public facilities can provide more child care, housing and community supports. Vancouver Green Park Board Commissioners will:

  • Increase childcare spaces by collaborating with the Federal Government, Provincial Government, Metro Vancouver, and City Council on opportunities to integrate more childcare into the Park Board system.

  • Connect people sheltering in parks with the supportive housing and services that they need by working with City Council, the Provincial Government, BC Housing, and social service organizations.

  • Prioritize local food by exploring options to upgrade our Community Centre facilities with the infrastructure needed to support the growth of food security programs across the city.

  • Increase collaboration between community centres and neighbouring schools to ensure community needs are being adequately met.
