Abstract: 

Public toilets are a topic that evade public and political awareness; however, they are integral to maintaining healthy, sustainable, and equitable public spaces in which all people can take part. In the City of Vancouver, there is a severe lack of public toilet provision, which has a detrimental effect on the ability for women, seniors, people with disabilities, and many other vulnerable people to leave their homes and take part in public activities and contribute to the local economy. This study explores and evaluates four potential policy options to help the city increase their public toilet provision with the support of existing literature, case studies and key informant interviews.
