Other Community Event

Waterfront Station is the centre of transportation for the entire Lower Mainland: three skytrain lines, Seabus, West Coast Express, freight rail, helicopters, float planes, regional and local buses, cruise ships, taxis, bikes, pedestrians. No other North American city enjoys such connectivity. 

Sadly, existing facilities are inadequate, and connections are often cumbersome. There are few attractive public spaces.

Think research is boring and unrelated to the real world? Think again! Researching the City is an inspirational evening showcasing how seemingly "abstract" research activities have real world impact on our city.

The event includes an interactive public gallery of faculty, staff, student and alumni research from SFU's Vancouver campus (and the wider SFU community) followed by a series of rapid-fire impact stories direct from the researchers themselves.

After Niagara Falls, Granville Island is Canada’s most visited destination. But Emily Carr University’s coming move to Great Northern Way has triggered the need for an update. Transportation is a big issue: the island is choked with cars; buses drop people blocks away; pedestrians and cyclists share narrow walkways on the Granville Bridge (which was designed as part of a freeway which wasn’t built). One success: the False Creek Aquabuses.

Early this year, construction was completed on what looks like a pair of three-storey, hip-roofed houses on East 33rd. Ave. The new development fits comfortably with other homes and Vancouver Specials in the Kensington-Cedar Cottage neighbourhood. But instead of the three single-family houses it replaced, the complex is home to 31 families spanning four generations.

SFU holds a variety of free events on and off campus in celebration of this national event.  Activities vary throughout the week and includes free tours
of the Trottier Observatory and the hyper/hypobaric chamber that "flies" and "dives". Check it out!
