The Jericho Lands property, formerly owned by the Department of National Defence, is approximately 52 acres (21 hectares) and located in the West Point Grey neighbourhood of Vancouver. The property is bounded on the north by 4th Avenue, Highbury Street to the east, 8th Avenue to the south.
This property was acquired on October 1, 2014 by the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations and Canada Lands Company in an historic joint venture. The agreement will see the joint venture partners working side-by-side with local communities and municipalities to establish a new vision for this site.
As an initial step, the community engagement program launched in March 2019. This engagement is co-hosted by City of Vancouver in partnership with Canada Lands and MST partners. A series of activities were hosted over the spring and summer 2019 to introduce the planning project including the project launch open houses, four events in the Inspire Jericho Talks speaker series, community outreach at public events, and visioning workshops with the general public and members of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. Feedback from the community and stakeholders will inform a new vision for site.
