West Vancouver is a district municipality in the province of British Columbia. It was home to 41,425 as of 2001. As of 2007, the mayor is Pam Goldsmith-Jones. Cypress Provincial Park will be one of the venues for the 2010 Winter Olympics. West Vancouver is also a 2006 Cultural Capital of Canada. West Vancouver is situated at 49° 19' N 123° 9' W, in the Pacific Time Zone (UTC-8). The city is a part of Metro Vancouver in the Province of British Columbia, Canada, northwest of the city of Vancouver on Burrard Inlet and Howe Sound. It is located on the North Shore and is adjoined by the District of North Vancouver. West Vancouver is also home of Canada's first shopping mall, Park Royal Shopping Centre.

The Municipality of West Vancouver was incorporated on March 15, 1912, after separating from the District of North Vancouver. The first municipal election was held on April 6, 1912. In November 1938, the Lions' Gate Bridge was opened to traffic, allowing extensive growth of the semi-populated community, only previously accessible by ferry. Some homes in West Vancouver date back to the 1920s and 30s, though most of the currently existing dwellings were built in the 1970s and 80s, and mostly in British Pacific Properties' developments.
