West Vancouver Local Market
Located between the North Shore mountains and the Pacific Ocean, West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is a short drive across the Lion’s Gate Bridge from downtown Vancouver. This picturesque community of more than 42,000 is renown for its seaside walks, hiking, skiing and rugged beauty. The Municipality of West Vancouver spans 89 square kilometres and is bordered by Howe Sound to the west, the Capilano River to the east, the mountains to the north and Burrard Inlet to the south.
West Vancouver separated from the District of North Vancouver in 1912, and since then, has remained primarily residential. Several neighbourhood business areas throughout the community serve the needs of area residents. The small town atmosphere is a result of careful planning, even though the area has seen a population growth characteristic of the Greater Vancouver region.
