VMC Secondary Plan Update

The Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC), bounded by Highway 407 to the south, Highway 400 to the west, Portage Parkway to the north and Creditstone and Maplecrete toads to the east, is evolving. As Vaughan's emerging downtown core, the area is poised to be the city's financial, innovation and cultural hub, with a vibrant sense of places linked by a network of parks, public squares and open spaces.

What is the VMC Secondary Plan?

The current VMC Secondary Plan (PDF), approved in 2010, provides a strong vision and policy foundation for the area and has helped guide its development. However, the VMC has seen rapid growth since then, which is why the plan needs updating.


Get involved

Public consultation has been a vital part of updating the VMC Secondary Plan and has evolved over several phases. Project vision and guiding principles were established as part of phase one (PDF). Phase two (PDF) involved gathering feedback on opportunities and constraints for two different land use options.


Now in phase three, you are invited to review the preferred option and learn how the City incorporated your ideas by reviewing the draft framework.


An in-person Open House was held on Sept. 14, thank you to those who attended. You can review the Open House presentation online.
