North Vancouver

Welcome to North Vancouver! Located on the North Shore of the Burrard inlet in British Columbia, North Vancouver is a haven for some of the best skiing and hiking trails the country has to offer. 

The municipality is separated into the City of North Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver. The City of North Vancouver is small in area, but one of the most urbanized areas of the North Shore communities. You can find the North Vancouver municipal hall located directly in the center of the City of North Vancouver.

North Vancouver features stunning waterfront and mountain views. North Vancouver is known best for its outdoor attractions, with facilities for fishing, sailing, skiing, and mountain climbing in the area’s many parks. North Vancouver seamlessly blends Pacific Northwest forests with a bustling urban atmosphere. You can witness this effect in places like Lynn Canyon and Garibaldi Park, where you step from residential streets into quiet rainforests in seconds. 

North Vancouver is a curious place. One minute it’s just this little suburb that isn’t even part of Vancouver proper (yes, it’s considered its own municipality), the next it’s an international destination with trendy restaurants and European-style shopping all along Grouse Mountain. It’s got everything from beaches to mountains and from parks to museums — more than any one person really needs.

North Vancouver is a popular destination for new families. The city’s school districts include public and private schools, elementary and high schools, and a local university. There are many schooling options, including multiple French immersion programs. Schools such as Ross Road Elementary have French immersion programs that feeds into French high schools, such as Argyle secondary.
