About the Event

The technical presentation will cover the review and approval process of development applications in the City of Vancouver. All municipalities’ structures are generally designed in a manner to support the community, so professionals of these buildings can contribute more to the public benefits through a more engaged communication process with the city staff. In addition, it would be beneficial for all to be aware of the policies and procedures in municipalities with an emphasis on the applications involving professional engineers and the matters that they need to be aware of when interacting with city staff during the review process.
