An experimentation and innovation hub where Capilano University students collaborate with City of North Vancouver staff and partners to co-create projects for the community.

We are a member of the CityStudio Network, a global movement of cities working with post-secondary institutions for civic benefit. Through the co-creation of experimental projects, students gain employable skills and municipal staff receive support to advance strategic priorities in the community. The first CityStudio North Vancouver projects were launched in September 2019.

Our Collaborators:
MONOVA: Museum of North Vancouver
North Vancouver City Library
North Vancouver Recreation and Culture Commission
North Vancouver RCMP
North Van Arts North Shore Rescue North Shore Neighbourhood House North Shore Women’s Centre Silver Harbour Seniors Centre City of North Vancouver Fire Department Centennial Theatre
