West Vancouver, “The Waterfront Community,” spans 89 square kilometres and is home for more than 44,000 residents. West Vancouver separated from the District of North Vancouver in 1912, and since then, has remained primarily residential. The small town atmosphere is a result of careful planning, even though West Vancouver has seen a population growth characteristic of the Greater Vancouver region. West Vancouver is fortunate to have dedicated residents and staff. We're proud of our beautiful community and will continue to preserve the characteristics that make it such a desirable place to live and work.
Under the authority of the Local Government Act, Council provides policy direction to staff, who then implement it.
