About

UrbanShift is all about the change that has been taking place in our cities, with a focus on the Metro Vancouver Region. The discussions here will take shape around the usual suspects:

  • Where did we come from?
  • Where are we now?
  • Where are we going?

When we think about commuting habits and the flows of growth, the story of growth in Metro Vancouver is not too dissimilar to other major metropolitan regions in North America. Our mountains and bodies of water have both blessed our recreational options and shaped the shape of our growth. However, our differences from other regions are most pronounced in our ability to have open dialogue about what we can do to make our region a better place to live. UrbanShift will attempt to trace that conversation, and to encourage us to have a more informed discussion about what’s really going on.
