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.

What’s New?

IAP2 Deep Dive: Bring it on!

Whatever your engagement issues; large or messy, let’s dive in.

IAP2 BC invites you to a Deep Dive event in Vancouver. Join other local P2 practitioners and those interested to dive into solutions to your messiest, scariest P2 problems. Snacks will be provided.

Please register for the event here!

P2 Drinks

P2 Drinks is our IAP2 BC networking series. We are hosting socials throughout this year so that we, as practitioners, can challenge our basic assumptions about P2.

In particular, why should we care about P2? Can we get more people to care? What does “meaningful engagement” mean?

Join us at these socials to discuss ideas that challenge us, make us take a step back, and re-examine our purpose, motivations, and the role of P2 in BC. Check back soon for events later this year in Vancouver and Victoria.

IAP2 Deep Dives

IAP2 BC’s Deep Dive series is a case-study approach to explore P2 lessons learned with other P2 practitioners.

Check back soon for events later this year in Vancouver and Victoria.


Bringing P2 to Engineers, Planners, Architects and other professionals
