Andrew Ramlo

Executive Director

As one of Canada's most well known demographers and planning consultants, Andrew is in high demand for his uncanny ability to forecast the demographic and economic change in Canada's diverse regions and markets -- and relate this information to specific industries, organizations, and firms. 

As Director of Urban Futures Incorporated, Andrew works with many of Canada's leading investors, retailers, and developers, as well as many of Canada's most rapidly changing municipalities, public agencies, and crown corporations. He is regularly quoted in the media, with his insights being informative, animated, and lively.  With a focus on dimensions of change -- be they demographic, economic, or societal  -- he shows how the data can be used to manage the challenges and opportunities organizations and individuals will face in the decades to come. He has written numerous research reports on a broad scope of topics, ranging from the future of our labour force, pension plans, and healthcare system, to urban planning and regional economics. 

Andrew is a member of the Planning Institute of British Columbia (PIBC); he sits on PIBC council and currently serves as the PIBC Membership Committee Chair and Secretary Treasurer. Andrew has organized and taught courses for both UBC and Simon Fraser University (SFU), in addition to providing ongoing workshops and seminars for programs at the British Columbia Institute of Technology and SFU’s City Program. In 2010 Andrew was recognized as one of Business in Vancouver's "Top Forty Under 40" for his vital contributions to the local business community.
