Community Recreation & Culture Needs Assessment


Your opinion matters!

North Vancouver Recreation & Culture (NVRC), on behalf of the City of North Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver, plays an important role in improving the health and well-being of our residents and inspiring creativity through our programs, services and events. 

Planning for our future
NVRC is committed to helping you be active and engaged by delivering quality recreation and culture programs, services and special events. That’s why we’re conducting a Recreation & Culture Needs Assessment to help guide us as we plan and deliver services to meet the community’s needs.  
Your opinion matters
We are reaching out to you for input on how to best serve the community’s needs.  This is your opportunity to share your ideas and opinions on community recreation and culture services in North Vancouver.
