Jericho Lands Planning Program

The Jericho Lands planning program is a comprehensive planning process which will help create a policy statement to guide future development of the Jericho Lands.

The program is being developed at the request of the sites owners, a joint venture partnership between the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh (MST) Partnership, and the Canada Lands Company (CLC).

The policy statement is intended to create a framework to create a new community that is sustainable, socially and culturally inclusive, and highly livable.

The planning program will explore options that address important priorities including:

  • Ways to advance our collective work toward reconciliation.
  • Creating a complete community with a range of housing options with different income levels and tenures.
  • Providing new housing within walking distance of existing and future frequent transit routes, including a potential SkyTrain extension to UBC.
  • Providing shops, services, childcare, and employment space to support the new community and the rest of the city.
  • Recognizing and celebrating cultural and heritage assets.
  • Creating new parks and open spaces, and a comprehensive package of other community amenities to be determined through the planning process.

For more information on the Jericho Lands planning program, please visit the City's project website.
