This graphic recording was created as one of a series of public workshops with local First Nations people. This one was created with the Musqueam elders. The intent was to gain elder knowledge about the thousand years' old Musqueam civilization in the area now known as Vancouver. This knowledge will help the MST Development Corporation, in collaboration with the Canada Lands Company, "transform the Heather Lands into an inspiring, progressive and sustainable new neighbourhood that generates the best possible economic and social benefit for all".
The plan since received the following awards:
• Excellence in Planning Practice - City & Urban Areas Gold Award | PLANNING INSTITUTE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
• Award for Planning Excellence - Planning for Reconciliation | CANADIAN INSTITUTE OF PLANNERS
