A year ago The Economist named Vancouver "The World's Most Liveable City." It has features other cities can only envy: a breathtaking mix of ocean and mountain, a vibrant multi-ethnic population, and a culture of innovation and eco-sensitive practices and policies. And yet, too many residents are being excluded from enjoying, taking part in and contributing to everything Vancouver has to offer. CPRN was commissioned to study the population and begin the process of dealing with the challenges it faces. The result is the research paper, Social Sustainability in Vancouver, by Merrill Cooper.
