Advocacy, education and outreach in support of Vancouver's public spaces

The VPSN has taken an active role in identifying billboards that violate the city bylaws governing acceptable advertising practices. Our mapping studies have identified large numbers of non-compliant billboards and will help inform upcoming campaigns lobbying City Hall for effective bylaw enforcement.

We also work to stay aware of regulatory loopholes and new forms of advertising that are not subject to bylaws and threaten to advance the corporatization of public space.
