About Renovate the Public Hearing
Renovate the Public Hearing is an initiative created by the Centre for Dialogue to act as a convener and catalyst: a collaboration to pilot changes to the provincial local government land-use public hearing requirements as a means to enhance social justice, community-building and strengthen democratic culture.
Our goal is to improve municipal efficiencies and increase trust in democracy by identifying evidence-based recommendations for revising the British Columbia's Local Government Act public hearing requirements to create stronger public engagement practices, supports for reconciliation, and more effective local government pre-development approval processes.
Convened by the Simon Fraser University Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue, Renovate the Public Hearing is a collaborative initiative partnering with the British Columbia Law Institute, City Hive and funded primarily by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation Housing Supply Challenge.
