We’ve updated the statistics for growth in the CNV. (revised Oct 15 2017)
Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy Projections:
City of North Vancouver
2021 2031 2041
Dwellings 25,600 28,000 30,200
Population 56,000 62,000 68,000
The 2016 census : Dwellings: 26,426
Population 52,898 (9.8% increase from 2011)
We have been tracking developments since 2011 using City documents including: Public Hearing minutes, Council meeting minutes, Committee meeting minutes and current development applications. The 2011 census showed dwelling totals as 24,206. Some developments included in our statistics may have a timeline of 5-8 years for completion.
If we take the 2011 census total of dwellings – 24,206 and add the current growth planned for of 6,184 (attached housing units) you can see we have exceeded the 2041 targets. We continue to advocate:
The City is growing too fast, outpacing infrastructure such as roads and transit, eroding green space, and detracting from its livability. We are already well ahead of the growth needed to meet our Regional Growth Strategy commitments. It’s time to pause and take a breath.
We’ve attached the up to date statistics for your information. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to let us know.
