GENTRIFICATION OF EAST VANCOUVER
REZONING JOYCE COLLINGWOOD
Joyce Collingwood in East Vancouver is a vibrant multicultural part of the city. The area is home to a large Filipino community. It’s like ‘Little Philippines’ with many Pinoy businesses and families. Near Joyce Skytrain station are a few popular Filipino restaurants.
Filipino businesses in East Vancouver at Joyce Collingwood are in danger! The area around Joyce Skytrain Station is being rezoned to allow for bigger buildings and high-rise towers. That means the restaurants will be demolished!
The loss of these businesses will be very bad for the Filipino community. Support these businesses while they are still open! The area around the Skytrain is very popular for redevelopment. It will bring in more people to the area but push out others including businesses.
Pampanga’s Cuisine is one such business that is very popular for authentic Filipino cuisine.
