SENAKW Updates


This August 25, 2022 Vancouver Sun article reports that David Eby called community concerns about Senakw NIMBY nonsense. Our residents push back, saying allegations of NIMBYism are “intended to silence the discussion”.


KPRA has for some time sought to obtain information from Squamish Nation/ Westbank partnership about the environmental reports prepared for the Senakw development, the traffic impact studies submitted to the federal environmental review and to the City of Vancouver and, more recently, the environment mitigation measures that are required as a result of the federal environment review. All such requests have been refused.

As they move into the construction phase, Nch’ḵay̓ Development Corporation (the Squamish Nation development corporation) has written to advise that while the requested information will not be available they intend to provide monthly construction updates as well as Community Information Sessions to be held via zoom. The sessions will cover technical information with regards to the construction and the schedule for Phase one of the project and will be held when deemed necessary by the Project team. The first information bulletin is linked here.

Thank you to all those who have donated to our Senakw legal fund to date. If you can help please contact us at or donate online at our website.
