Report: Residential Preferences and Public Health in Metro Vancouver

This report highlights results focused on Metro Vancouver from a residential preferences survey that was conducted for the Healthy Canada by Design CLASP Coalition with funding provided by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer’s Healthy Canada by Design Coalitions Linking Action and Science for Prevention (CLASP) program.

This report is a companion piece to The Walkable City: Neighbourhood Design and Preferences, Travel Choices and Health, which was produced for the Greater Toronto Area by Toronto Public Health in 2012 from the same survey.

The goal of the survey was to understand: which neighbourhood features are desired by residents in Metro Vancouver and the Greater Toronto Area; and if those desires are being met by their current neighbourhoods. It also looked into how both preferences and the physical environment where people live predict their behaviour and health.
