Learn about the partners
The MST Partnership (composed of the Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation and Tsleil-Waututh Nation), along with Canada Lands Company, are the joint venture partners responsible for 4195 Marine Drive. The MST Partnership and Canada Lands Company entered into a historic partnership in 2014 establishing an equal ownership interest in the parcel. 100 per cent of the site is collectively held by the joint venture partners.
This is a unique partnership and a historic milestone for Canada Lands and the three Nations' communities. Working in a collaborative manner, the MST Partnership and Canada Lands Company are looking forward to developing 4195 Marine Drive to support shared goals and objectives.
Growing the strength of Canada's First Nations in the Metro Vancouver region demonstrates a commitment to a process of reconciliation. The lands will accordingly be developed in order to bring economic and social benefits to the Nations' members, local communities and the country as a whole. The partners aim to be inclusive and collaborative, spearheading a new relationship model for the rest of Canada between the federal government, Canadians and First Nations.
Canada Lands strives to benefit local communities by creating innovative neighbourhoods that are walkable, mixed use and environmentally sustainable in both design and construction. Informed by its comprehensive public engagement process, Canada Lands delivers projects that integrate and complement the regions in which they grow, prioritizing liveability, the environment and historical commemoration.
