Lonsdale Quay is a major public market and tourist destination with an adjacent transit hub for Vancouver's North Shore municipalities.

Located at the foot of Lonsdale Avenue in the City of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, it is adjacent to the northern terminal for the SeaBus passenger ferry.

The headquarters for the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia is located in a neighbouring building.

History[edit]

SeaBus departs Lonsdale Quay bound for Downtown Vancouver

The marketplace opened just prior to Expo 86 on April 12, 1986 and features over 80 tenants, including food retailers, restaurants, retail shops, artisans and a boutique hotel.[1]

The quay was built on the former site of North Van Ship Repair, a major shipyard during World War II.

In the 2010s, the Quay became the site of intensive construction of housing developments, backed by Mayor Darrell Mussatto.[2]
