Vancouver Community College has developed a Campus Master Plan, which will set forth a long-term vision for the future of the Broadway and Downtown Campuses.

The engagement and planning process was completed in November 2019 and resulted in a vision, a series of principles, and a set of design strategies that is the backbone of the Campus Master Plan.

The Campus Master Plan is a long-term policy document about the physical environment that supports development and partnerships on campus, keeping in step with the College's strategic priorities. The plan guides decision making that influences the functioning of the campuses and the campus experience for the next 20-25 years.

The plan's development occurred in four phases. Canadian design firm DIALOG and its consulting partners made regular visits to the VCC campuses to conduct research and meet with stakeholders. The diagram below depicts the planning process and the dates for each phase.
