What is Moving in a Livable Region?

Moving in a Livable Region is a consortium of businesses, organizations, local governments, and transportation leaders working together to create a long-term sustainable funding regime for transportation in the Metro Vancouver region. Given that the current transportation network is stressed and the region is growing by 35,000 people and 17,000 jobs per year, the consortium recognizes that a properly funded transportation system is required in order to stay nationally and internationally competitive. A sustainable funding regime for regional transportation will help to grow our economy and maintain a high standard of living for residents.

Moving in a Livable Region is committed to preparing Metro Vancouver citizens and stakeholders for the referendum by providing information on transportation issues and funding options for the region in the context of the upcoming vote.
