Smart Planning for Communities

Fraser Basin Council

Smart Planning for Communities is a BC-wide collaborative initiative providing resources and tools to local and First Nations governments for planning socially, culturally economically and environmentally sustainable communities. SPC has established a network of Sustainability Facilitators located across BC. These Facilitators work with local governments and First Nations to help identify resources (both financial and informational) and assist communities in developing their respective planning processes, by:

  • Providing consistent targeted advice from expert facilitators
  • Increasing capacity to plan and implement actions for sustainability at the local level across social, cultural, economic, and environmental dimensions
  • Improving access to and further refining best practices, tools and approaches to sustainable, comprehensive community planning
  • Improving linkages between funding agencies and communities across BC
