Who We Are

The Urban Development Institute is a non-profit association of the development industry and its related professions that is non-partisan in its activities. With over 850 corporate members, UDI Pacific represents thousands of individuals involved in all facets of land development and planning, including: developers, property managers, financial lenders, lawyers, engineers, planners, architects, appraisers, real estate professionals, local governments and government agencies.

 

Since 1972, the Pacific Region has been dedicated to fostering effective communication between the industry, government, and the public; and aims to improve both housing and job opportunities for all British Columbians. UDI Pacific also serves as the public voice of the real estate development industry, communicating with local governments, the media, and community groups. UDI concentrates its activities in three primary areas: government and community relations, research, and professional development and education.
