Since 1886, the communities of Metro Vancouver have cooperated in the development and delivery of services essential to our growing region. From safe drinking water and effective management of solid and liquid wastes, to world-leading collaborative governance, Metro Vancouver has a proud and storied history. Since 2002, Metro Vancouver has formally put the concept of sustainability at the centre of its operating and planning philosophy and advanced its role as a leader in making the region one which is explicitly committed to a sustainable future.
