About JARA

The Joyce Area Residents Association (JARA) was founded in response to the Joyce Station Precinct Review that proposes market-rate condos on three corners around the skytrain station. The condos proposed have the potential to displace long-time community members of low to middle income backgrounds and many different immigrant groups. JARA has key concerns with the current options outlined by the city. The group demands protections for renters and retailers that threaten to be displaced and insists that the City make all consultation accessible to multiple language groups. JARA is currently connecting with homeowners, renters and other community members to build a plan for the area that prioritizes community visioning and affordable housing.
