North Vancouver Recreation & Culture (NVRC)

North Vancouver is one of Canada's most active, healthy, and creative communities and its residents value a healthy lifestyle achieved through recreation and culture. This is evidenced by the more than three million visits to community recreation facilities each year; a strong public art program; and, an abundance of thriving arts and cultural organizations, programs and events. The North Vancouver Recreation & Culture Commission (NVRC) is a bi-municipal organization that delivers arts, culture and recreation programs and services on behalf of the City and District of North Vancouver. These include: the provision of quality recreation and arts experiences; the operation of community recreation facilities and Centennial Theatre; coordination of Public Art programs; management of grants programs; and, promotional and cultural planning services.

Arts & Culture Grants

Grants are available to support the operations of local arts organizations, events and festivals, and to foster a wide range of activities that reflect the talent, creativity, spirit and diversity of the community.

North Vancouver Recreation & Culture Commission

In June 2014, the City and District of North Vancouver announced the consolidation of the Arts Office and the North Vancouver Recreation Commission into the new North Vancouver Recreation & Culture Commission (NVRC). The consolidation brings together municipal cultural expertise under one umbrella organization to enhance arts and cultural programming and services in North Vancouver and achieve efficiency in service delivery.

Background

North Vancouver is one of Canada's most active, healthy, and creative communities and its residents value a healthy lifestyle achieved through recreation and culture. This is evidenced by the more than 3.5 million visits to community recreation facilities each year, a strong public art program and thriving arts and cultural organizations, programs and events.

The North Vancouver Recreation Commission's role on behalf of the City and District of North Vancouver has included the provision of recreation and arts programs, cultural events and the operation of Centennial Theatre. The Arts Office on behalf of the City and District of North Vancouver has managed public art and grants programs, assisted City and District departments in cultural planning, promoted arts and culture and provided support to many local arts organizations. The consolidation of these two bi-municipal entities comes after extensive review of the benefits and opportunities of merging the two organizations.

North Vancouver Recreation & Culture will continue to provide a wide range of programs and services with a view to building healthy individuals, families and communities.
