Description This riding is on the north shore of Burrard Inlet across from Vancouver and Burnaby. The eastern boundary is Indian Arm and Indian River, while the Capilano River and Capilano Lake form part of the west boundary. The city of North Vancouver is here, along with three reserves: Mission, Seymour Creek and Burrard Inlet.

The 2001 census counted 120,841 residents. More than 30 per cent are immigrants. The riding is home to Chinese, East Indian and Italian communities.

The service industry is the biggest employer here. Residents are well-educated (more than 21 per cent have a university degree) and well-paid (average family income is $84,750). A lot of that income goes to pay for housing: the average dwelling here is worth more than $350,000. Unemployment is 5.8 per cent.

The riding was created in 1986 from the North Van-Burnaby and Capilano ridings. In 1996 it added about a quarter of Capilano-Howe Sound. In 2004's redistribution, about six per cent of the population was pared away.

Population: 120,841
