Our Work in Greater Vancouver–Sea to Sky

gvss_plug_in_bc.jpg

FBC is part of Plug in BC — a multi-interest collaboration led by the Province to lay the groundwork for electric vehicles. We administered provincial incentives that led to installation of over 400 Level 2 charging stations, available to members of the public and to fleets across BC. In all, there are now 530 stations in the BC network, plus six DC fast charge stations, with more fast charge stations on the way. Read more about Plug in BC in our Climate Change and Air Quality section of the site.

The Greater Vancouver – Sea to Sky (GVSS) Region* is the most populated, urban and culturally diverse region in the Fraser Basin. Residents here enjoy city conveniences alongside spectacular natural landscapes and ecological diversity. The need for balance is critical as the region grows. The Fraser Basin Council works across the GVSS to inspire and support action for sustainability.

Our staff work with public, private and non-profit sector bodies on key community issues, offering facilitation, project management and education services. Our greatest inspiration is you! We’re proud to be part of so many innovative projects — including those on transportation, urban planning and regional sustainability.

Contact us to learn more.

Many of our Basin-wide and BC-wide programs are also delivered in this region —  see Climate Change and Air Quality, Watersheds and Water Resources and Community Sustainability and Resilience.

*Note: For FBC, the GVSS region includes all of Metro Vancouver and the western part of the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District.

Our Vision

Social well-being supported by a vibrant economy and sustained by a healthy environment.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
