About North Vancouver

Scenic Views & waterfront access

A small waterfront sawmill town developed into the biggest settlement on the inlet. An American, Sewer P. Moody, bought the former Pioneer Mills in 1865. By the 1870s, the settlement was named Moodyville. In 1891, the north shore became the District of North Vancouver, five years after Vancouver was incorporated as a city. In 1907 the city of North Vancouver was incorporated as an enclave within the district, and in 1915 the city took over Moodyville. The western part of the North Vancouver district established itself separately as West Vancouver in 1912.

The city's diverse economy is based on sawmilling, shipping, and shipbuilding. The north shore region of Burrard Inlet is linked to the south side by two bridges: the lions gate in the west to Vancouver and the Second Narrows in the east to Burnaby. Additionally, a passenger ferry operates across the inlet between North Vancouver city and downtown Vancouver
