Get in touch with Vancouver’s waterfront

Contact the Waterfront Initiative waterfront@georgiastrait.org

The Waterfront Initiative is an invitation to collaborate for all those with an interest in the future of Vancouver’s shorelines: First Nations, government, businesses, civil society organizations, and citizens.

We host regular Stakeholder and Citizens’ Forums to define a common agenda with measurable objectives and actionable steps towards a healthy and prosperous Vancouver waterfront.
