MST Development and Canada Lands joint ventures newsletter
The Heather Lands is taking another big step towards reality this spring.
This land is proposed to become χews tə n̓a xʷəlməxʷ / X̱aws Uxwumixw, a new neighbourhood, with homes, shops, parks, daycare and a Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh cultural centre. The community will be organized around a forest trail reminiscent of the trails travelled by ancestors across the peninsula of Vancouver.
On Tuesday, May 24, Vancouver City Council will hold a public hearing to gather feedback as it considers approving the rezoning application for the new Heather Lands.
Read the latest newsletter from the project team to learn more about the rezoning approval process and how you can provide your support.

About MST Development and Canada Lands joint ventures
Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation, and Tsleil-Waututh Nation established MST Development to oversee properties owned by the three nations and celebrate our cultural and family connections. Our ancestors shared these lands for generations and we honour that legacy by working together for the future of our communities. MST Development currently oversees six properties totaling 160 acres of prime developable lands throughout Metro Vancouver, valued at over $1 billion.
In 2014, MST Development and CLC entered into a historic joint venture with the purchase of two significant land parcels in the City of Vancouver: the Heather Street Lands and the Jericho Lands. Together, MST and CLC are planning the redevelopment of these lands to create new opportunities for our members and the city.
