Vancouver Magazine recently released their Power 50 List for 2022, and at the very top was none other than Tsleil-Waututh Nation alongside Musqueam Band and Squamish Nation in recognition of their leadership and contributions. These include consultations with Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron on the New Vancouver Art Gallery as well as the signing of the MOU for the first Indigenous-led bid to host the 2030 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Through MST Development Corporation we'll be seeing exciting projects in the future such as the redevelopment of St. Paul's Hospital, the building of various homes in Jericho as well as near BCIT, and continued influence in multiple levels of government such as renaming of streets.
We at Naut'sa mawt Tribal Council extend our heartfelt congratulations to Tsleil-Waututh Nation on this prestigious recognition for the important work they do, demonstrating that we are all stronger when communities work together. We look forward to seeing more great accomplishments in the future.
