COVID-19 Updates

Oct 9, 2020

Latest updates

The District of West Vancouver has developed an operating model to gradually restart services that were closed as a result of the pandemic. The first, and most important deciding factor when considering restarting any service is the safety of residents, businesses and staff. We will continue to keep the community informed of service level adjustments. To receive information by email, subscribe to e-west.

  • Recreation facilities are open on a pilot basis for registered visits and programs. No drop-ins permitted. Read more. ​
  • West Vancouver Art Museum is open with reduced hours. Read more.
