UniverCity: A Complete Sustainable Community on Burnaby Mountain 

UniverCity has been 18 years in the making – a complete community that both complements and supports the function of Simon Fraser University and offers a model of sustainability for urban communities everywhere.

This report assembles the highlights, describing UniverCity’s successes to date, explaining why it has attracted national and international acclaim for its sustainable planning and practice, and Setting the Stage for a Stunning Second Act.
