General Description of Requirement
The City of Vancouver (the “City”) is seeking Expressions of Interest (“Request For Expressions of Interest - RFEOI”) from vendors to support engagement on the Vancouver Plan with equity-seeking communities in Vancouver. These vendors need to have expertise working with racialized and intersectional communities, knowledge of the community networks and history, and designing and facilitating accessible processes for them. Ultimately, the City would like to identify interested and qualified parties to work with the City on engagement on future scenarios.
The City of Vancouver is developing a long-term, strategic citywide plan that will deliver a more healthy, green, fair and prosperous city for all the people that live, work, and visit here, now and in the future. The Vancouver Plan will help set priorities, unify existing plans, and invite public participation in imagining the Vancouver we want to become by 2050 and beyond.
Broad engagement efforts often result in under/lack of representation from some communities and overrepresentation of people and communities with better access to resources, time, and education to participate. This imbalance impacts the City’s ability to appropriately plan for interventions, long-term policy, or investments that take into account a diversity of needs, resulting in inequities in our society.
The Vancouver Plan project team is committed to employing more inclusive approaches to public engagement and ensuring that equity is foundational to the process of planning Vancouver together. The City has been piloting a “Vancouver Plan Community Navigator Program,” from November 2020, in partnership with a number of Neighbourhood Houses, where community members with lived experience and expertise design and lead engagement with their communities.
