About Lions Bay

Lions Bay is a small picturesque seaside Village nestled at the base of southern British Columbia's Coast Mountain Range. Towering over the Village are the twin peaks from which the Village gets its name, the Lions, or the Two Sisters as they are called by the indigenous peoples of the south coast.  This residential community of 1334 (2016 census) is one of the smallest self-governing municipalities in BC.

Incorporated on January 2, 1971, the Village of Lions Bay is governed by a mayor and four councilors. Municipal operations are conducted by 9 full-time and 3 part-time staff. The municipality has a consolidated annual budget of approximately $2.1 million with the average property assessment of $1,067,000 (2009 values).

Lions Bay is located in the northwest corner of the Metro Vancouver Regional District, between West Vancouver and Squamish. Lions Bay forms part of the Metro Vancouver Regional District and is also a member of several municipal and community associations, including the Lower Mainland Municipal Association, the Union of British Columbia Municipalities, the Lower Mainland Treaty Advisory Committee, Howe Sound Community Forum and West Vancouver School District #45.
