With its name giving a pretty good indication of its whereabouts, West Vancouver is a municipality of B.C., (incorporated back in 1912), and is one part of a local regional group that makes up what we often refer to as the ‘North Shore’.
Having grown in population since 1938 when the iconic Lion’s Gate Bridge opened to traffic, people were able to visit and relocate much easier, as prior to this, the area was only accessible by ferry. It’s for this reason that some homes in West Vancouver date back to the 1920s and 30s, though most of the existing dwellings were built later, in the 1970s and 80s.

April saw buyer demand relax further across Metro Vancouver*, resulting in home sales returning to more traditional levels.
“So far this spring, we’ve seen home sales ease down from the record-breaking pace of the last year”, says Daniel John, Chair at the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV). He adds, “While a small sample size, the return to a more traditional pace of home sales that we’ve experienced over the last two months provides hopeful home buyers more time to make decisions, secure financing and perform other due diligence such as home inspections”.
Kitsilano, or often Kits for short, is a very popular area of Vancouver for people to not only call home, but to stretch out on the beach on the weekends, take their bikes for a joyride or to simply spend a day inspecting the popular shops and bustling eateries.
Named after August Jack Khatsahlano, an Indigenous/Aboriginal chief of the Squamish people, the area originally offered plenty of resources for those who lived here to hunt, fish, trap and gather.
