Neighborhood Associations in Vancouver have been officially recognized since 1975. The city has increased opportunities for citizen involvement over the years and built strong partnerships between city hall and the community through relationships with recognized neighborhood associations. Vancouver has 66 officially recognized associations, and over 90% of the city's population are members of a neighborhood association.

Most neighborhood associations have regular meetings of the membership, in order to discuss neighborhood concerns; plan projects and social activities; and learn more about services and volunteer opportunities in our community. Meeting agendas are set by the Neighborhood Association officers. Most neighborhood associations communicate meeting details via neighborhood newsletters. Check the individual neighborhood association pages for newsletters with information about meeting dates, times, and locations.
The Neighborhood Action Plan process was started in 1994 to identify assets and issues of concern in each Vancouver neighborhood and to devise strategies for addressing those concerns. Issues include traffic and pedestrian safety, public safety, transportation, recreation and open space, land use and housing.
