Transforming the places we live so that everyone can belong.

After months of community engagement to better understand the needs of equity-deserving genders, we presented a list of policy asks to candidates for the City of Vancouver Council & Mayor from the ten largest municipal parties.

 

Our report card displays how each candidate responded to our policy asks and the policy briefs explain the full campaign process and how we arrived at these eight actionable policy asks. 

Over the next four years we will continue to ensure that the voices and experiences of those made most marginalized are heard and considered in the decision making process.

 

We will continue to work in coalitions, act on priority issues for our community, organize at critical moments, build the civic participation skills of community groups, and we will be at every council meeting to hold this council accountable to the policy pledges they've made.

WTC is conducting an initiative to understand what progress has been made in municipalities across BC and how we can support municipalities to implement this work.

The work of WTC in Vancouver takes places on the stolen ancestral territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. We acknowledge the leadership of Indigenous women for time immemorial, and seek to learn and unlearn our own colonial practices as we work in cities as sites of resistance.
