This riding was created in 1987 from portions of North Vancouver—Burnaby and Capilano electoral districts.
The 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution concluded that the electoral boundaries of North Vancouver should be adjusted, and a modified electoral district of the same name will be contested in future elections. The redefined North Vancouver loses the eastern portion of its current territory to the new district of Burnaby North—Seymour, while its western boundary with West Vancouver—Sunshine Coast—Sea to Sky Country is adjusted to correspond to the boundaries between the District of North Vancouver, West Vancouver and the Capilano Indian Reserve. These new boundaries were legally defined in the 2013 representation order, which came into effect upon the call of the 42nd Canadian federal election.
Consisting of those parts of the Greater Vancouver Regional District comprised of:
- (a) the City of North Vancouver;
- (b) that part of the District Municipality of North Vancouver lying westerly and northerly of a line described as follows: commencing at the intersection of the northerly limit of said district municipality with the western bank of the Seymour River; thence generally southerly along said bank to the northerly boundary of Seymour Creek Indian Reserve No. 2; thence generally westerly along said boundary to the Mount Seymour Parkway; thence westerly along said parkway to the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway No. 1); thence northwesterly along said highway to Lynn Creek; thence generally southerly along said creek to the westerly limit of said district municipality;
- (c) that part of Subdivision A lying easterly of the Capilano River and westerly of the Indian River and Indian Arm, passing to the east of Croker Island; and
- (d) Mission Indian Reserve No. 1.
