Recruitment in progress
Your city and your health are more connected than you think.
Vancouver is undergoing major changes, from a rapidly expanding cycling network to the development of urban greenways, slow streets and vibrant pop-up plazas. How will these types of changes impact you and future generations? Are they making our city a happier and healthier place to be, and if so, for whom?
We’re looking for answers and we need your help. Your experiences in the city can provide valuable information to decision makers about how we should be designing great places for people in Vancouver. Join our study and be part of the conversation.
Join our study, Vancouver!
Vancouver’s city greenways are making it easier for people to walk, cycle, roll, and connect. Will developments like this make the city a happier and healthier place to be? Who will benefit the most from these corridors? We’re uniting hundreds of Vancouverites to find out.
Ready for the next round?
If you participated in the data collection in 2018 or 2020, we want to know how changes in your neighbourhood have impacted you!

Vancouver’s City Greenways are routes that prioritise active transportation, expand urban recreational opportunities, and serve as high-quality linear public spaces. Popular routes such as the Arbutus and Central Valley Greenways link neighbourhoods across Vancouver and carry regional cycling traffic between Vancouver and neighbouring municipalities, like Burnaby and New Westminster. The City is working toward building an integrated city-wide network of 18 Greenways that will be within a 10-minute cycle or half-hour walk of every residence in Vancouver.

How did participants respond two years ago?
The health questionnaire focuses on lifestyle, health, transportation habits and the perception of change in the neighbourhood. VERITAS is a map-based questionnaire which allows respondents to indicate where and with whom they do certain activities.
