Community Benefit Agreement Information Seminar

Wednesday, March 21 2018, 9am - 12pm

To register for the event please click here, and enter the password "Inner City".

Community Benefit Agreements are an increasingly common tool used by Municipal, Provincial, and the Federal government to ensure that development projects enhance social, cultural, and economic opportunities for equity seeking groups, the social enterprise sector, and the local small business community. 

At the event, stakeholders will learn more about:

  • What a CBA is and how it differs from other policies like community amenity contributions and development cost levies
  • Showcase CBA examples from Vancouver and other jurisdictions
  • Understanding social procurement and social hiring initiatives
  • Learn about the social enterprise sector and exisitng social procurement opportunities 
  • Envision what a CBA might look like for the Northeast False Creek Flats, the new St. Paul's Hospital development and other upcoming large projects
  • Ask questions and provide input regarding their role in a CBA

This informative event is an opportunity for stakeholders to engage in a mutual process of learning and development and will hopefully create a better understanding about how the City, Developers, and Community can work together to create a Vancouver where all residents can prosper and live full and rewarding lives.

We hope you will join us on March 21st!
