Councillor Holly Back

Councillor Holly BackI am proud of the accomplishments made during my last two terms on Council. Some of the City’s major projects are underway, including the Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre, Silver Harbour Seniors’ Activity Centre and North Shore Neighbourhood House. These facilities will benefit everyone in our community, and I will work to ensure these projects stay on track.

Moving forward, and guided by our city’s Strategic Plan, I will advocate for more affordable and diverse housing options to support our youth and growing senior population.

Moving safely and efficiently through our city is also important. The City has been working closely with North Shore communities, TransLink, and other levels of government to create better public transit and I will continue to push for solutions that benefit our community. As a former business owner, I understand how important small businesses are for our economy and I am committed to doing all I can to help our local businesses, so they continue to thrive.

This is an exciting time for our community, and I will continue working to ensure we have a vibrant, livable and prosperous city for all of our residents and businesses.

2014 to present


I am honoured to serve my third term as Councillor, as your representative with the City of North Vancouver. Born and raised in North Vancouver, I began my career on the North Shore as a hair stylist, then went on to teaching at Carson Graham High School. After receiving my Master’s Degree in Education, I opened a successful high-end hair salon and training facility on Lonsdale, which I operated for 20 years.

During that time, I was honoured to receive the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award in the 'Best Employer' and 'Business Person of the Year' categories, and have twice been a finalist in Vancouver's YWCA Women of Distinction awards. I was also honoured to be voted one of Canada’s most inspirational women by Chatelaine magazine. My husband and I have three sons, and they all live in North Vancouver with their families.
