The neighbourhood was named after the Capilano River, Capilano River Canyon, and Capilano Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver, BC. The name “Capilano” comes from a Salish word meaning “people of Hiap”. It also happens to be the hereditary name of the Chief of Squamish, central cost Salish who traditionally lived in the area that is now considered North Vancouver.

You’ll find tree-lined streets, parks and some beautifully landscaped homes in Capilano.
