Metro Elects: Exploring the Region’s Top Issues and Opportunities
Program: 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. PT
Local governments provide the core services we rely on in our neighbourhoods and work to address the challenges faced by businesses and residents across the region. In October 2022, British Columbians will have their say in who represents them in their local governments through municipal elections across the province.
GVBOT has once again partnered with Mustel Group to engage candidates, the business community and the public in a non-partisan, informative event. At the event, we will release the findings of an exclusive and insightful poll of residents, politicians, and the business community about their perceptions of the region’s most urgent issues and opportunities.
This event will also feature presentations from leading regional organizations that impact the quality of life in our region. We encourage candidates running in the elections and anyone interested in participating in a dialogue about the future of our region to attend.
