Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation, and Tsleil-Waututh Nation and MST Development Corporation Recognized as #2 on Vancouver Magazine’s Power 50 List

Tsleil-Waututh Nation is proud to stand alongside the Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation, and the MST Development Corporation in being featured once again on the Vancouver Magazine’s Power 50 List.

The MST Development Corporation was established to oversee properties owned by the MST Partnership, a historic partnership of the Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation, and Tsleil-Waututh Nation. Our three nations are full or co-owners of multiple properties throughout Metro Vancouver, currently valued at over $5 billion. This includes a vision for ʔəy̓alməxʷ/Iy̓álmexw/Jericho Lands, which will become a new high-density, mixed-use, car-light community shaped by the culture of the MST Nations.

In referring to MST, Vancouver Magazine states: “What keeps them on the tip of every conversation about power is that they aren’t just reshaping the city—they’re redefining what’s possible.”
