Provincial Recovery from COVID-19 Pandemic

On July 31, 2020, the Union of BC Municipalities made written submission to the Government of British Columbia in response to the provincial consultation document, “Building BC’s Recovery, Together”. The UBCM submission provides local government perspectives on the immediate and projected long term pressures they and their communities face as a result of the pandemic. These perspectives reflect local government outreach undertaken by UBCM from March to May 2020, as well as more recent engagement on specific policy files such as public transit. By identifying the challenges facing local governments, as well as possible solutions, UBCM aims to generate new and creative opportunities for BC local governments, and inform the Province’s recovery process.
