Who We Are
West Southlands, in the southwest corner of Vancouver, is a welcoming community of around 300 homes in a semi-rural setting adjacent to Musqueam Park and forests that host a wide assortment of birds, native plants and wildlife.
The West Southlands Residents Association (WSRA) is a volunteer-run, non-profit BC Society, founded in 1984 to maintain and enhance our neighbourhood, foster good relations with our neighbours and strengthen our connection to the natural environment through community engagement and advocacy. Membership is open to all residents within our area.
West Southlands Residents Association
We gratefully acknowledge that we live on the unceded ancestral territory of the Musqueam people
What We Do
Our association has annual public meetings where we discuss issues of interest in the neighbourhood. We typically invite speakers from the City or other regional agencies to speak. For example, in 2021, we asked a city councillor to speak about the potential for the Fraser River Trail to be completed across the entire south of the city and beyond.
We have a board of directors that meets an additional few times a year, works with city and metro officials on neighbourhood priorities, puts out a newsletter to keep residents informed, gathers residents' opinions, and updates this website. Residents are encouraged to contact the Board with any suggestion or updates.
