In December 2016 the then Board of Trustees of UCV established a committee to investigate the merits of partially redeveloping the UCV campus while retaining ownership of all of the property.

This investigation has two goals; 1) to establish whether or not redevelopment will contribute to long-term financial security and sustainability for the church and 2) to establish whether or not it will make a contribution to much-needed affordable, non-market housing in Vancouver.


Vision Statement

At this mid-century point of its life, our vision for the campus of the Unitarian Church of Vancouver for the next 50 years is that of a compelling, beautiful, intergenerational home for Unitarians to worship and to celebrate, one respectful of the original design, one that provides an affordable place to live for a cross-section of our community, and a place for all Vancouverites to gather for spiritual enquiry, to enjoy arts and culture, and to engage in dialogue and action on matters of social justice and the environment.

The project must help ensure the long-term stewardship of the UCV assets in a financially and operationally sustainable way into the next 50 years.
