Hosted by S.U.C.C.E.S.S., All Our Neighbours is a series of roundtable conversations that explore the intersection of neighbourliness and diversity across the Lower Mainland.

Vancouver is the fourth of this series after Coquitlam, Surrey and Richmond.
Local residents are invited to VOTE ON THE QUESTIONS online for the upcoming roundtables at AllOurNeighbours.com/questions-survey/. You can also anonymously share your thoughts on the questions in advance of the roundtables. The poll will be open until Nov 30, 2017.
