We would like to hear from you. We are looking for your feedback as we develop a policy statement for the Jericho Lands. We will use this page to provide project updates and ask for your input at different stages of the 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 site.

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

The policy statement will create a framework which will guide future redevelopment of the site and help 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 a walking distance of existing and future 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 process
