A BRIEF HISTORY AND HELPFUL CONTACT INFORMATION FOR NORTH VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA

The City of North Vancouver is situated in southwestern British Columbia, adjacent to the City of

Vancouver, in the Greater Vancouver Regional District. North Vancouver is located along the north

shore of the Burrard Inlet and extends from the Capilano River on the west to beyond Deep Cove on the

east. The Trans Canada Highway is the main roadway through North Vancouver.

The population of North Vancouver numbers approximately 47,733.

HISTORY

Settlers were first attracted to the area by the rich forests on the north shore of the Burrard Inlet. In 1864

T.W. Graham and Co. acquired a 194 hectare timber stand and timber was soon being shipped from the

quickly built Pioneer Mills. The small waterfront mill town became the largest settlement on the inlet.

In 1872 Pioneer Mills was bought by an American by the name of Sewell P. Moody. He gave his name

to the settlement of Moodyville.

After Vancouver was incorporated, the north shore became North Vancouver. In 1925 the Second

Narrows Bridge was completed, providing a fixed link with Vancouver. In 1938 the Lion’s Gate Bridge

provided a second link.
