IAP2’s BC Chapter


Welcome to the west coast chapter of the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) Canada. We are an Association seeking to promote and improve the practice of public participation with individuals, governments, institutions, and other entities that affect the public interest in British Columbia, Canada and around the world. This new website has been developed to support our members and to further the practice of public participation at the local level. Take a few moments to explore the site and see what new resources are available and learn how you can contribute.

Join IAP2 BC at our AGM

Mark your calendar. The IAP2 BC Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 22, 2018.

Many of you know that reaching a diverse audience and designing inclusive engagement activities is not always easy. Join your colleagues to learn insights and lessons learned from two BC IAP2 Canada Core Values Award Winners. Catherine Rockandel, Engagement Strategist, and Amanda Gibbs and Spencer Lindsay, members of the City of Vancouver, Public Engagement team. Join us to see videos, learn about, and discuss:

  • Richmond School District 38 Our Schools, Our Students, Our Future – Let’s Talk, winner of the 2017 Diversity and Inclusion IAP2 Canada Core Value award, and
  • Britannia Renewal Master Plan, winner of the 2018 Indigenous Engagement IAP2 Canada Core Value award.

There will also be an opportunity to network and socialize with fellow P2 practitioners, and we will welcome our new IAP2 Board Members.
