The City of North Vancouver’s utility rates are calculated each year to ensure effective and sustainable delivery of water and sewer services to the community, now and in the future. The annual utility bills generate the revenue needed to fully fund the cost of the City’s utilities, including:

  • Annual operations, maintenance and upgrading programs
  • Long-term infrastructure replacement
  • Water supply and sewage treatment from Metro Vancouver

The City works to limit the increase in utility costs each year.

Impact of Regional Increases

The largest portion of utility costs are for the purchase of drinking water and treatment of sewage, payable to Metro Vancouver. The breakdown is shown below.

Over the coming years, there will be significant increases in sewer costs related to the new North Shore Wastewater Treatment Plant, a project needed to improve the quality of the treated wastewater released into Burrard Inlet.

The City has set up a funding plan to help smooth future rate increases for property owners. A portion of each year’s utility fees is placed into a reserve to be used to reduce rate increases.
