The City of Vancouver is launching a new, innovative way for people to provide feedback and share their opinions and ideas with City Hall at TalkVancouver.com.
Talk Vancouver is an online community, open to anyone over the age of 15 who lives, works or attends school in Vancouver. Participants will be asked to provide opinions and feedback on important city issues by participating in online surveys and discussions via their smart phones, computers, and tablets.
“The launch of Talk Vancouver is one more way we are following through on recommendations from our Engaged City Task Force, and it will be a great new tool for people to have their say on the issues that matter to them,” said Mayor Gregor Robertson. “In a city like Vancouver, not everyone can make it out to a public hearing or come speak to council. People are busy with their kids, their jobs and their family lives. By partnering with Vision Critical on Talk Vancouver, we’re embracing new technology to support civic engagement, and providing people with a way to become part of an online community that’s plugged in to what’s taking place at City Hall and around Vancouver.”
