Date: April 6, 2021
Time: 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM PDT
Registration: Sorry, public registration for this event has been closed.
Event Description:


If there's anything that 2020 has taught us, it’s governments that have invested in technology have been able to better withstand public health orders compared to those that rely on paper-based and in-person processes.

In the planning and development industry, this has meant delays in permit approvals - impacting building timelines and delaying projects which are critical to economic recovery. With new funding from the BC government to support a modernization of permit approval processes - there’s a unique opportunity to make improvements while local government budgets remain tight. 

Join us and our panel for a discussion on the future of permit approvals and learn from the people behind one of the top government permitting programs in North America - Orange County, California - and how their learnings can be applied in BC. 

Key topics we will dive into: 

Overview of impacts in the permit approvals process in 2020
What technology evolution could mean for the BC economy  
How Orange County Public Works Department maintained a 10-day average turnaround over the past year
