ABOUT NORTH VANCOUVER
Situated just across Vancouver Harbour from Downtown Vancouver, North Vancouver is a spectacular waterfront community that’s positioned on the north shore of Burrard Inlet. Between the North Shore’s three primary municipalities, the District of West Vancouver, the District of North Vancouver, and the City of Vancouver, the City of North Vancouver is actually the smallest in terms of area, but also the most urbanized, with residential and commercial mid-rises and high-rises dotting the landscape.

NORTH VANCOUVER LIFESTYLE
One of the most interesting aspects about North Vancouver is that although in many ways it’s a city all on its own, many still consider it to be just another thriving suburb of the Greater Vancouver region. Shipping, chemical production, and film production are all major industries in North Vancouver, but given it’s close proximity to downtown Vancouver, which is only about 13 kilometers away, its hard to think of it as anything more than a nearby suburban community with lots of employment, residential, and recreational opportunities. Recent census statistics show North Vancouver’s population is right around 50,000 residents, with that number continuing to rise because of its eclectic mix of housing options, as well as it’s wide range of employment opportunities in a number of different industries
