Native Vancouverite Nancy Stibbard purchased Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in 1983 and has spearheaded the attraction’s development and phenomenal success over the past 30 years. Nancy’s commitment to exceeding guest expectations and her vision to ‘create experiences people are amazed by’ guide every aspect of her businesses.
Nancy’s initial success came from retail, reworking the merchandise mix at Capilano Trading Post to include more Canadian-made products and upscale brands. She opened new stores in BC and Alberta, then purchased and rebuilt two luxury accommodation properties in the Canadian Rockies – Moraine Lake Lodge (1991) and Cathedral Mountain Lodge (2002). In 2014, Nancy added Stanley Park Pavilion and Prospect Point Cafe and Gift Shop to the Capilano Group portfolio. The Prospect Point property will be renovated in a way that enhances its function and its history, while the Pavilion has recently been restored to its former glory.
