The Provincial Seismic Mitigation Program is a comprehensive seismic upgrading program to make schools safer in the event of an earthquake.
The Vancouver Project Office (VPO) is a joint Ministry of Education / Vancouver Board of Education undertaking, formed in 2015 to complete Vancouver seismic projects as efficiently and economically as possible. It is responsible for managing seismic Project Teams throughout the feasibility, design and construction phases. Each Project Team consists of:
- VPO staff
- school principal
- consultants (architect and engineers)
