Official Community Plan - Online Open House

This is the time to have your say and help us direct the future of Tofino.

The current Official Community Plan (OCP) was drafted in 2013 and as our town expanded, as did the need for an updated vision. Development began in 2018 for a new OCP document that better reflected the community's values and evolving needs.


The Plan in Motion

Over the summer of 2018, staff began working on many land-use projects that helped to inform and guide the Plan; such as the Multi-Modal Transportation Plan, Cox Bay Area Plan, Industrial Lands Review, Flood Plain Mapping, and Coastal Risk Assessment. To ensure maximum opportunities for local input, the development process was broken down into five phases, throughout which we've hosted a number of consultation events. The gathering of information and direct community feedback has continued to guide the vision and provided a current view of expectations around growth.

Final Steps

As we near the final drafting stages, we are asking the community to participate in reviewing the full plan once again to ensure important considerations have not been missed. We hope the array of engagement tools on this platform make it easy and convenient for you to share your feedback.
