Jericho Lands Planning Program

This comprehensive planning program will help us create a policy statement to guide the future development of the Jericho Lands.

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

About the Jericho Lands

The Jericho Lands are a 36-hectare (90 acre) area in Vancouver’s West Point Grey neighbourhood bounded by W 4th Ave, Highbury St, W 8th Ave, and Discovery St.

The site is within the unceded traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations (MST) and owned by the MST Nations and Canada Land Company (CLC).

What's happening

Pop-up information booths

Throughout the summer we hosted a series of pop-up information booths at community events. The Jericho Lands planning team were on hand to present project information, discuss early feedback, and listen to your ideas.

Thanks you to everyone that visited us at Point Grey Fiesta (June 22), Greek Day (June 23), Khatsahlano (July 6), and Vancouver Folk Music Festival (July 20 and 21) and shared your thoughts with the project team.

Artist Workshop

On Sunday, July 7, Stanley King and the Co-Design Group facilitated an Artist Workshop at Jericho Hill Centre.

The group helped participants visualize their ideas for the future Jericho Lands. The material generated at the workshop will be used to help develop guiding principles and redevelopment concepts for the site.

Planning process

The Jericho Lands will go through a comprehensive planning program that will help guide its future redevelopment 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
