The Green Party of Vancouver is pleased to present its Priorities for Action. This summary is a living, evolving document, informed by member input and updated periodically. This most current update was made in May, 2023.
Statement of Values and Principles
We acknowledge the urgent need to address climate change, protect our environment, and address inequality in all its forms so that those who live, work, and visit Vancouver can achieve their fullest potential. Greens at all levels of government (federal, provincial, and municipal) are committed to leading change through honest, transparent, science-informed, and consensus-guided governance. The Green vision of good governance is guided by the Party’s Core Principles.
Vancouver was established and currently exists on unceded lands of the the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. Unceded means that this land was never surrendered, relinquished, or handed over in any way. With honesty and humility, we endeavour to work openly and collaboratively to repair the harms of the past, with the goal of building toward a more equitable future. To this end, the Party is committed to engaging in substantive and meaningful unlearning, relearning, and “reconciliaction,” in which the input, teachings, and partnership of Indigenous Nations are held as essential to our shared future, and as such are welcomed and also incorporated into good governance within our city.
The Party’s current priorities are summarized below.
