The District of West Vancouver is committed to governing under fiscal best practices, to the highest ethical standards, with a commitment to transparency, and with the goal of including as many citizens as possible in Council meetings, community consultations and the democratic process.

The District operates under a Council/Manager system, under which the elected Council provides policy direction to staff, which then implements Council policy.
