WVP has participated throughout the Inspiration Port Credit process which partnered both City officials and the community in the visioning process. In addition to City staff and consultants, the community stakeholder advisory group included executive members from The Town of Port Credit Association (TOPCA), Port Credit Cranberry Cove Ratepayer Association (PCCCRA) and The Port Credit Business Improvement Association (PCBIA). These community-based organizations represent the most directly affected neighbourhoods, and they already have been engaged in the Inspiration Port Credit process.
A collaborative approach to development.
