Chronology Timeline

Planning and Development in Vancouver: Online Timeline

The first edition of the online timeline of the chronology was launched in January 2016 following a year of development in collaboration with community partners and an advisory group of planning professionals The first edition was based on the research of students in a course created by UBC SALA to generate the baseline information for the first edition, covering  years up to 2014. The development of Milestones since 2014 have been coordinated by the VCPC Chronology Project Committee.

The online timeline includes detailed information on individual entries up to 2011. Significant events and actions for the most recent five years, currently 2012 to 2016, receive a different treatment, reflecting the challenge of trying to identify a milestone without benefit of hindsight. The process for designating milestones during a contemporary five-year period is described here.
