The North Vancouver Recreation & Culture Commission was established in 1970 as a partnership between the City of North Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver and we are proud to have served one of Canada's most active and healthy communities since then.
Our mission is to build healthy individuals, families and communities and we know that recreation and culture are vital to the overall health, wellness and creativity of our community. That's why we provide and facilitate quality recreation and culture programs, services and events that enhance quality of life for all North Vancouver residents.
We operate 11 Community Recreation Centres, the North Vancouver Tennis Centre and Centennial Theatre, the North Shore’s largest performing arts theatre. We also manage room and venue bookings for facilities, fields, and outdoor spaces across North Vancouver.
We promote creativity, celebrate diversity and contribute to North Vancouver’s unique sense of place through the provision of cultural services that include a comprehensive Arts & Culture Grants program, cultural planning resources, and a public art program.
North Vancouver Recreation & Culture gratefully acknowledges that we operate on the traditional, unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
