Metro Vancouver Consultation and Community Relations Services

Date: 2014-present

In mid-2014 EcoPlan was selected for a standing offer with Metro Vancouver’s Liquid Waste Services and Water Services departments to provide on-going, and as-needed engagement and planning support services. To date, this work has included First Nations engagement, document review and development, and most recently a larger project to engage stakeholders in a review of options to better manage private sewer connections in the region. This project will involve in-depth work with a small stakeholder group, using structured decision making methods to evaluate and select a methodology for private sewer management. EcoPlan has recently started to support Metro Vancouver’s Air Quality and Climate Change Services Department on engagement and consultation projects, research initiatives, and policy support. Current work includes consultation support tasks for the Proposed Amendments to Greater Vancouver Regional District Non-Road Diesel Engine Emission Regulation.
