City of Vancouver

We work with City staff and elected officials in Vancouver.


We work with universities and colleges in Metro Vancouver.



We work with students from any faculty or program at our partner schools.

The City of Vancouver is CityStudio’s founding civic partner. Since 2011, we have worked with hundreds of city staff on projects from a range of departments and teams including the Sustainability Group, Cultural Services, Planning, Engineering, Elections, Vancouver Park Board and the Vancouver Economic Commission.

To ensure the greatest value for the city, all projects align with a key City of Vancouver strategic plan. These include the Greenest City Action Plan, Healthy City Strategy, New Start Strategy, Renewable City Action Plan, Resilient Vancouver and City-Wide Plan (in development).

Work With Us

Are you a City of Vancouver staff member? Working with students on a project through CityStudio can provide valuable outside-the-box thinking and experimentation to help move your work forward.

Our team will provide support throughout the process to ensure the best results for you and the students. For a project to be successful, we've learned that:

  • Most projects take place in the Fall (September to December) and Spring (January to April)
  • Staff need to dedicate a minimum of 10 hours during the term (complex projects may require more time)
  • This includes a pre-term project scoping meeting, 3 in-class visits and HUBBUB, our end-of-term showcase at City Hall.
