Lower Capilano Partnership Committee

The Lower Capilano Partnership Committee was created in January 2007 with the goal of improving community infrastructures and supports in five neighbourhoods: Lions Gate, Lower Capilano,  Norgate, Pemberton Heights, and  Woodcroft.  This unique group of community service providers, and community members share and work toward a common vision for the Lower Capilan area.

The Committee's key objectives focus on:

  • Filling in the gaps in neighborhood needs. 
  • Building cross-neighborhood relationships and implementing sustainable social, recreational and educational programs for families and people of all ages & cultures.

Support for Lions Gate initiatives has been provided by the District of North Vancouver through funding grants and by the North Vancouver Recreation and Culture Commission through direct staff support.  Grant funding is targeted both to enhancing existing programs and developing new ones.

In 2015 the Lower Capilano area was renamed Lions Gate.  For more information please check the District of North Vancouver's website
