Our vibrant city, view from Mt. Benson

Our City, Our Voices.

REIMAGINE NANAIMO is our opportunity to create a collective vision and road map for our future City. Together, we will identify our strengths to appreciate what we have today, and look forward to new opportunities to strengthen and grow our community. As our population grows to 100,000 residents and beyond, we need to collectively imagine how our spaces and places evolve to better meet the needs of our natural environment and of all who live here.

What kind of city will Nanaimo be in 20 years and beyond?

Our community plans will be built with ideas from individuals, groups, and organizations through their participation in REIMAGINE NANAIMO. To be successful, we need voices from across our community to share in the conversation. A key aim of this process is to be accessible to everyone – regardless of your age, your time constraints, or your knowledge base – it's easy to be part of building our community vision. We are committed to cultural safety and humility, LGBTQ2S+, accessibility and inclusiveness. The plans that we create together will guide the decisions that shape our City over the coming years.

Nanaimo is for all of us. Let's reimagine our future – together.


TOPIC AREAS

REIMAGINE NANAIMO is an integrated process, exploring many topics that are important to our community's future. There is a lot we want to learn from you on each of these topics. But we also know you have limited time, so we've divided the topics into separate, shorter questionnaires below. The questionnaires will be open through our entire Phase 1 engagement that runs until September. We encourage you to complete each one, although you are welcome to participate in as many or as few as you'd like. Your personal information will remain confidential. If you feel uncomfortable with sharing your name in forthcoming forums and chats, you are welcome to use a pseudonym (pen name) as your username.

The following questionnaires are included:

REIMAGINE NANAIMO Ideas Questionnaire: This is our main questionnaire that asks overall about your thoughts and experiences in Nanaimo. If you only complete one survey, make sure to do this one!

REIMAGINE NANAIMO Topic Questionnaires: These are our topic questionnaires seeking more in-depth thoughts and insights into key topics for Nanaimo's future. We encourage you to complete any or all of these.

  1. How We Adapt & Stay Green - your ideas for protecting our environment and preparing for climate change
  2. How We Connect & Play - your ideas for the future of parks, recreation and culture
  3. How We Care - your ideas for improving social equity, inclusivity, and accessibility
  4. How We Work - your ideas for enhancing economic development, business, and jobs
  5. How We Move - your ideas for a more active and sustainable transportation network
  6. How We Live - your ideas for our neighbourhoods today and tomorrow
