The District of North Vancouver lies in close proximity to Vancouver’s downtown via the picturesque Lions Gate Bridge and the Iron Workers Memorial Bridge on Highway 1, the Trans Canada Highway. Known for years as the ‘North Shore’ or ‘North Van’, the stunning views overlook Howe Sound to the west, Burrard Inlet to the south, Indian Arm to the east and the Coast Mountains to the north. It is home to generations of families attracted to the mountains, outdoor lifestyle, recreation and family-friendly neighbourhoods.
