Structure and Strategy

We represent both local service providers and larger public bodies, together with neighborhood and city-wide perspectives.

Members from all these sectors sit on the Management Committee which leads and coordinates our efforts, delegating activities to working groups as necessary.


There is a close relationship between Windows of Opportunity Vancouver and the ECD/MOU Group because similar members sit in both tables.  These members are:

  • City of Vancouver
  • The Vancouver Public Library
  • The Vancouver School Board
  • The Ministry of Child and Family Development
  • The Vancouver Coastal Health


An important part of our work is to support the development of strategic action plans and local community initiatives:

The Social and Emotional Needs of Children 2014 Summary Forum Report



Windows Management Committee consists of 6 Network, 3 City-wide, and 5 Public Partner representatives and alternates.  For each Network and City-wide group, there is one representative who distributes all information, initiates meetings with the other agencies, and  maintains communications, and is expected to attend the monthly meetings.
