This research represents the inaugural use of the Community Capital Tool as applied in the District of Sechelt. The Community Capital Tool has been developed through the combined work of Simon Fraser University’s Centre for Sustainable Community Development in Canada and Telos, the Brabant Centre for Sustainable Development, at Tilburg University in the Netherlands. The Community Capital Tool has been developed to guide local level planning and development processes in efforts to achieve optimized social, economic, and environmental objectives. The results of the study can be drawn upon to develop a greater understanding the current capacity of the community capitals in the District of Sechelt. Findings also show that further commitment is required by the community to create optimization and balance among the six Community Capitals. This study contributes a greater understanding of sustainable community development by establishing a quantitative method of measuring the social, economic and environmental impacts of planning and development decisions.
