The North Shore is comprised of three municipalities: District of West Vancouver, District of North Vancouver, and the City of North Vancouver.
Diversity has always been one of North Shore’s strongest assets. In 2011, it was home to 59,855 immigrants, representing 34.5% of the total population – a proportion that was only slightly lower than those of Toronto or Burnaby, cities regarded as among the world’s most diverse.
Immigrants play a crucial role in helping to grow our communities, as they boost school enrollments, the labour market, and many other aspects of community life on the North Shore.
