This WikiProject aims to organize, improve the quality, and provide accurate information in an established, community-driven, Wikipedia standard for Vancouver, Metro Vancouver, and Vancouver-related articles. The importance of these articles for new users, research, education, and the pursuit of accumulated knowledge will be accomplished through our efforts in providing a consistent format and standard to our articles. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians.
