Spirit Trail Partnerships

The North Shore Spirit Trail has received significant support from the federal and provincial governments, North Shore municipalities and local First Nations.

The City of North Vancouver has received the following grants to assist in the realization of the Spirit Trail:

  • Harbourside West Overpass - $2.6 million through the federal and provincial governments
  • Bewicke Section - $750,000 through the provincial government
  • Lonsdale Quay Section - $275,000 through the provincial government and TransLink
  • Waterfront Escarpment / Moodyville Park Section - $980,000 through the provincial government
  • Squamish Nation /Mosquito Creek Marina  - $400,000 BikeBC grant through the provincial government

In 2007, the City signed a Trail Partnering Agreement with the Squamish Nation to facilitate the joint design, planning, financing and construction of a waterfront greenway. This greenway, now known as the Squamish Nation Waterfront Greenway, was completed and officially opened in February 2009. The City and Squamish Nation continue to collaborate on the Spirit Trail project and in May 2014 amended the 2007 Agreement to allow for a Spirit Trail connection along the waterfront from Bewicke to the existing Squamish Nation Waterfront Greenway.
