Profile Last Updated: January 07, 2009
North Vancouver is known as the Lion of the North by its citizens. It is a vibrant urban centre with a suburban feel, boasting diverse shopping conveniences, booming commercial districts and varied housing developments. It is also one of the Lower Mainland's vital marine and shipping centres. A culturally diverse and continually thriving community, North Vancouver strives to keep growing and developing for the benefit of its citizens.
The Lonsdale Quay Market is one big visitor magnet with its unique retailers and waterfront views of the Vancouver skyline. One bus ride away you'll find the breathtaking Capilano Suspension Bridge and the challenging Grouse Mountain Trail. Don’t forget to take a walk along the Waterfront, where the 700–foot pier stretches out as the area’s most recognizable landmark. Historically and up until today, the Pier serves as a bridge between North Vancouver and the Lower Mainland and Greater Vancouver Region. Other ecological and entertaining attractions are Lynn Canyon Park and Cypress Mountain.
Why Choose North Vancouver
Some of the most beautiful residential neighbourhoods in Greater Vancouver have been created in this city. Although the household size is smaller than the region's norm, its average family income is higher than the typical BC family's, most likely due to high educational levels and low unemployment rates. The diversity of the residents in this community has also brought variety to the businesses in the area. These reasons, combined with its spectacular natural environment, make North Vancouver a unique and integral part of Vancouver.
