Diverse North Shore

Between January 2011 and May 2016, a total of 10,565 newcomers from more than 30 countries joined our North Shore Community. At the time of data collection: 

  •  3,085 of the recent immigrants were reported to be living in the West Vancouver District
  • 3,620 in the North Vancouver District
  • 3,365 in the City of North Vancouver
  • 495 in Squamish Nation’s Xwemelch’stn and the Tsleil-Waututh Nation (data on recent immigrants in other Squamish Nation communities were suppressed by Statistics Canada due to small population numbers)

The map below was constructed using May 2016 census data, and is based on those who were reported to be residing in the area at the time of data collection. It contains the following layers of data:

  • North Shore Neighbourhoods: Categorized by neighbourhood groups, contains the region’s total population, total immigrant population, recent immigrant (2011-16) population, and percentage (%) breakdown for recent immigrants’ countries of origin.
  • Children (aged 0-14) : Categorized by municipalities, contains the region’s total children population, total children immigrant population, recent children immigrant (2011-16) population, and percentage (%) breakdown for recent children immigrants’ countries of origin.
  • Seniors (aged 55+): Categorized by municipalities, contains the region’s total senior population, total senior immigrant population, recent senior immigrant (2011-16) population, and percentage (%) breakdown for recent senior immigrants’ countries of origin.
  • NSIIP Partners: Geolocation of NSIIP’s partner organizations and agencies.

Please note, you must use the layer selector located on the top left of the map to view different layers, as some layers may be masked by superseding layers (eg. to view Seniors layer, you must un-tick North Shore Neighbourhoods and Children layers).

Tip: For better navigation, drag the map or use the zoom (+/-) controls or the mouse scroll. You can also collapse the layer selector box located on the top left. Please visit our Resources page for printable PDF versions of the neighbourhood data, and the seniors & children data.
