Street Food Vending in Vancouver: An Opportunity for Local Economic Development Bialostozky, Claudia


This report is about the City of Vancouver’s street food vending policy. It looks at the challenges and opportunities faced by the City in its effort to expand the types of food, the nutritious content and the geographical distribution of street food sold on the streets. The report offers a view of the stakeholders and regulations that shape the activity. It provides recommendations for future policy changes which would enable the expansion of the types of food sold on the street while arguing the benefits this program would offer as a local economic development strategy to encourage the involvement of entrepreneurs from low income segments of the population of Vancouver.
