Mayor Gregor Robertson and our Vision team are focused on building an inclusive city with vibrant, diverse, and fabulous neighbourhoods and communities, where people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities feel welcome and can call Vancouver home.

With Pride Week now less than 4 weeks away, we’re excited to announce that our 4th annual VISION:PROUD celebration is on Monday, July 25th, at XY, in the heart of the Davie Village - and we hope you’ll celebrate with us!

Our team has always been fiercely proud to stand with Vancouver’s LGBTQ2+ community in building an inclusive, equal, and even more fabulous city. On city council, school board and parks board throughout the past years, our team have continued to work toward ending homophobia and transphobia, in the fight for full equality for all Vancouverites.

  • In 2012, Vancouver was the first city in Canada to have rainbow painted crosswalks - a step forward in recognizing the important contributions to our city from the LGBTQ2+ community;

  • In 2013, the Vision-led city council allocated $7 million to Qmunity for a new LGBTQ2+ multipurpose community centre;

  • In 2014, the Vision-led city council designated the Vancouver Pride Parade with civic status and both the Vision-led school board and parks board passed updated gender inclusive policies;

  • In 2015, the Vision-led city council passed the Mayor’s motion to strengthen protections for transgender residents in our city; and

  • This year we’re excited for the completion of the new Jim Deva Plaza!
