Join us for a Community Conversation on how a strong sense of belonging and social connections can strengthen neighbourhood ties and help build a more vibrant North Vancouver.

This is your chance to connect with other North Vancouver residents and organizations and contribute to a conversation on issues like  health & wellness, food/community gardens and sense of belonging in your community.

  • What access do North Vancouver residents have to local healthy food?
  • What are the opportunities for interaction and sharing amongst
  • neighbours in North Vancouver?
  • How can community gardens serve as a place for sharing and connection?
  • What opportunities are available in North Vancouver to participate in
  • sports and recreation activities?
  • What are opportunities for volunteerism in your community?

Through small table discussions, you will have the opportunity to share what matters to you in your community; tell the stories of what you or others are doing to enrich your community; and share your thoughts on successes and opportunites for improvement. A summary of themes and recommendations from each Community Conversation will be provided to the
Mayor, Municipal Council and stakeholders of each participating community.


5:30 – Doors Open and Registration
6:00 – Short Presentations
6:30 – Small Table Discussions
8: 00 – Light refreshments and an opportunity to connect with other

Help shape the future of your community by joining in the conversation.

Attendance is free.


In October 2010, Vancouver Foundation released the Vital Signs report which looks at
livability in metro Vancouver. One of the key findings to come out of the report is that a strong sense of belonging and trust between neighbours helps to create stronger, healthier communities.

Through a series of community conversations, Vancouver Foundation will explore this important finding. Each community will focus on key topics and issues that are relevant to that community. A summary of themes and
recommendations will be provided to the Mayor and Municipal Council and stakeholders in each participating community.

Community Conversations will take place in June 2011 in Maple Ridge, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Richmond, Vancouver, and White Rock.
