Be Involved

Our community is stronger and our democratic processes are more resilient when citizens have many touch points with their local government.

The District of West Vancouver relies on its citizens to shape policy and processes in meaningful and positive ways.

Citizen participation on committee and working groups and in public consultation processes is key to helping Council make better decisions on behalf of all residents.

We encourage you to get involved.
