University Endowment Lands Community Information Initiative

Honourable Peter FassbenderMessage from the Minister:

The University Endowment Lands (UEL) is the only part of British Columbia where the provincial government provides local services directly to an urban area. The UEL covers a diverse community of about 4,000 people, some of whom may not be that familiar with the nature and operation of the UEL.

With the UEL’s population forecast to increase just over 60 percent, from 4,000 to 6,500, in the next 10 years through new development, there will be many changes in the community.

In July 2016, I wrote to the UEL’s Community Advisory Council to outline my commitment to sharing with the UEL community some of the facts that have emerged from the Ministry’s work to date. As a result, a series of factsheets have been prepared to provide basic information about present governance, services and financial arrangements in the UEL area. 

Having a shared view among the community about the current nature and operation of the UEL will help ensure that any future conversations about your UEL community are grounded in a common understanding of the community as it is now.

Honourable Peter Fassbender

Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development and Minister Responsible for TransLink


大学保留地 (University Endowment Lands): 有关您社区的信息

厅长寄语:

大学保留地(UEL)是不列颠哥伦比亚省唯一一个由省政府直接向城市地区提供本地服务的区域。大学保留地是一个约由4000人组成的多元社区,其中有些人可能对大学保留地的性质和运作不是那么熟悉。

在未来10年,通过新的开发,这里的人口预估将从4000增加到6500,增幅超过60%,这个社区将会发生很多的变化。

2016年7月,我写信给UEL社区顾问委员会,概述了我要与UEL社区民众分享一些在本厅迄今为止的工作中所反映出的情况。因此,我们准备了一系列的说明资料,旨在提供有关UEL目前的政府管理、服务和财务安排的基本信息。

就UEL的性质和运作与社区民众拥有共同的看法将有助于确保未来有关这一社区的对话都是以我们今天对该社区的共识为基础的。
