Administrative history

The Greater Vancouver Regional District was created in 1967 as the Regional District of Fraser-Burrard. In 1968, the name was changed to the Greater Vancouver Regional District.

Since its creation, the Regional District has been responsible for planning and administration of services that are common across the regional, predominantly utilities and regional aplnning. It took on these responsibilities from three already-existing bodies: the Greater Vancouver Sewerage and Drainage District (created 1913), the Greater Vancouver Water District (created 1926), and the Lower Mainland Regional Planning Board (created 1949). While the first two technically still operate, they do so under the overall banner of the Regional District, along with the Metro Vancouver Housing Corporation.

In 2017, the name of the organization was changed to the Metro Vancouver Regional District.

Scope and content

File consists of data and maps documenting an industrial lands survey across Greater Vancouver. The file has two components: an oversized ledger containing aggregate data, organized by Industrial District, indicating transportation linkages, transit accessibility, utility services, site size, types of buildings, employee statistics, turnover of occupants, etc. The associated atlas maps individual industrial sites by type. Note that the City of Vancouver is missing from the atlas (though the Vancouver data is included in the data ledger); maps cover Burnaby, New Westminster, Fraser Mills, Coquitlam, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, Richmond, North Vancouver City and District, Delta, Surrey, and Pitt Meadows. The boundaries of Industrial Districts are noted on the maps.
