VoteLocal is a research and education initiative by FleishmanHillard HighRoad, Mustel Group, and the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade. Last year we provided a snapshot of some of the issues and dynamics at play in the municipal elections throughout Metro Vancouver by conducting a survey of businesses, residents and elected officials. This year we are conducting a similar survey focusing on businesses and the community to explore what issues are top of mind for Metro Vancouverites leading into the federal election this fall. Check back here for updates over the course of the election campaign and make sure to buy your tickets to the GVBOT event happening September 16th.

As part of VoteLocal’s most recent survey of Metro Vancouver civic election candidates, we asked if local residents have been engaged and interested in talking about the election, and what that might tell us about potential voter turnout.
Mustel Group and FleishmanHillard HighRoad, in partnership with the Greater Vancouver Board ofTrade, undertook a unique survey that explores the views of the public, the business community and the politicians on key issues, and looks at the priorities of new candidates compared to mayors and councillors who will soon pass the torch to the next generation of leaders.Download the full report
