It's about pulling together. We kicked off our first Canada 150+ Signature Event today with the Gathering of the Canoes—the first time the 16th annual Pulling Together Canoe Journey has landed in Vancouver.
The canoes were divided into clans and each group requested permission to land on the shared territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tseleil-Waututh First Nations.
What an honour it was be a part of this journey.

We proclaimed today as the official "Day of Laughter" here in the City of Vancouver in celebration of public art around the city.
We are honoured to have @yueminjun—the artist behind the piece "A-Maze-Ing Laughter" at English Bay—visit and are thankful to Chip and Shannon Wilson for their support in keeping the sculpture in Vancouver.
Thanks to @van_biennale, @vanparkboard and @cityofvancouver for your hard work in showcasing public art here in Vancouver and we look forward to continual support of public art projects.

Have you explored the Arbutus Greenway? It’s an old rail line turned temporary path that takes you from Kitsilano to Marpole in a 9km stretch. There are over 2,000 cyclists and 700 people that walk the path daily and enjoy the scenery and flowers dotted along its path.

We dropped by this weekend for the celebration of the Arbutus Greenway Temporary Path and it was a great time for all!

Less than a week before these cobbles will be singing! We're proclaiming July 12, 2017 as "Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix Day" here in Vancouver and we can't wait to take in the festivities of Canada's oldest one-day cycling classic.

We introduced regulations for short-term rentals today. The framework—crafted in collaboration with @Airbnb and @Expedia—will legalize most short-term rental listings and potentially return 1,000 homes for long-term rental housing in Vancouver.
We believe that “housing is first and foremost for homes, not to be operated as a business and the @CityofVancouver’s approach to short-term rentals strikes a balance that will ensure the best use of all our housing.”
The short-term rental regulations will go to Council next week. For full details, hit the link in our bio.

The Drum is Calling Festival (July 22 – 30), the Gathering of Canoes (July 14) and the Walk for Reconciliation on September 24, where we join together and are reminded of ‘Namwayut—that We Are All One.

Who knew #Vancouver is home to one of the world's largest children content creators? We visited DHX Media—the folks behind @degrassi @snoopygrams @strawberryshortcake (the list keeps going)—this week and were blown away by the sheer size and passion of the team there.

We chatted with execs, answered questions from the team and watched a roundup of the fruits of their labour.

Seeing how it takes a week to animate 6 seconds of footage for a feature film, we can see how it takes a whole village to put it all together. They're hiring 111 new spots in Vancouver, so if you're looking to join a solid team and eat lunch at Vancouver's (arguably) best work rooftop patio, check out their site!

We hope everyone had a happy #NationalAboriginalDay! With such a diverse array of Métis, Inuit and First Nations cultures here in #Vancouver, we're blessed to be able to celebrate the immense contributions of our Aboriginal People. As a City of Reconciliation, we continue to make a long term effort of systemic change based on mutual understanding and respect.

For more information on what being a City of Reconciliation means for the @cityofvancouver, visit the link in our bio.

When people of different backgrounds, situations and opinions get together, real discussions happen.
The Big Conversation hosted by the #HousingVan team @cityofvancouver brought people together and set them loose on a serious topic that affects all Vancouverites—housing. The diverse viewpoints shared here is a part of the solution to overhaul our city's housing strategy and that conversation continues online at vancouver.ca/housing. We hope you'll join us and continue the dialogue.
