Community Representation

Our Promise to You

TEAM will restore trust in City policy development, planning processes, and public engagements by ensuring that they are transparent, impartial, collaborative, and focused on the residents and businesses directly affected by the outcomes.

How We Will Get There

TEAM will put neighbourhoods at the heart of City operations, policy development, and future planning by:

  • Empowering residents and local businesses to advocate for their interests through City-supported neighbourhood organizations
  • Keeping feedback local by ensuring that only verified Vancouver residents, business owners, and property owners have a say in Vancouver issues 
  • Improving information access through the timely publication of staff briefings to Council, as well as all available materials related to public proceedings
  • Increasing transparency through such actions as creating a registry of lobbyists and professional advocates that work on behalf of special interests, organizations, and businesses 
  • Making City Council directly accountable to the voter by exploring alternative representative-government models

This is just the beginning - we will be releasing more details.
