About Capilano Mall

About Us

With over 90 stores and services, Capilano Mall is North Vancouver’s regional shopping centre. Conveniently located along one of the North Shore’s busiest commercial corridors with ample free parking, Capilano Mall has excellent accessibility from both North and West Vancouver along Marine Drive. Our retailers offer the residents of North Vancouver and tourists alike a unique shopping experience with a broad range of stores and services, all within a convenient central North Vancouver location.


Capilano Mall has been a key staple of the North Vancouver neighbourhood for almost 50 years. After opening its doors to the public in March 1967, the shopping centre was very well received by the community. Throughout the years it has undergone renovations in the Food Court, washrooms, common areas, and has upgraded lighting throughout the shopping centre. It is home to a two-level Sears store and a Wal-Mart Supercentre, along with popular retailers such as Starbucks, Tim Hortons, Subway and Visions Electronics. Capilano Mall’s large common area with natural light (known as Grand Court) has held countless community events over the years.

Fast becoming a central gathering place for North Vancouverites, Capilano Mall offers unique family-friendly services to its customers. From a family-friendly lounge and newly upgraded children’s play area to a Food Court with natural light and a new soon-to-opened Guest Services Information Centre, shoppers can find all the little extras that will make their experience at Capilano Mall easier and more relaxing.

Totem Poles

Erected in 1986, the two carved totem poles located in Grand Court add a West Coast flavour to Capilano Mall. They are the perfect way to pay homage to our rich native history. In 2006, a rededication ceremony took place to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the “Bringing to Life” of the totem poles. Norman Tait and his family gave the totems their names in 1986. The totem poles are a wonderful part of Capilano Mall’s history and ties to the local land.
