Company news 50 years

North Vancouver is a diverse community with heavy industry, small business, tourism institutions and even a major post-secondary institution. Two of those entities, Neptune Terminals and Capilano University, have been operating here for 50 years, making them key building blocks in the foundation of the North Shore.

At Neptune, we are proud to be partnering with Capilano University during its milestone celebration. To mark our respective anniversaries and share our stories with the community, CapU and Neptune have teamed up for a year of celebrations.

Since its inception in 1968, Capilano University has grown from a small community college to a mature post-secondary institution known for its quality education, engaging programs, beautiful North Shore campus and dedication to scholastic excellence. Students and alumni go on to change the world and challenge the status quo in all walks of life. Neptune is a long-term partner of the university, supporting students through annual scholarships, bursaries for international study experiences, guest lectures by our staff and terminal tours for students and their instructors eager to see supply chain management and international business operations first-hand.

Neptune will be celebrating alongside Capilano University, its students, staff and faculty all year long, beginning with CapFest on September 22nd. The public is invited down to enjoy the festivities and learn a bit about the history and future plans of these two foundational North Shore institutions.
