RC2 | Readers Choice 2023

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the North Shore News’ annual Readers’ Choice Awards!

You, our loyal readers, cast your votes, recognizing the best businesses, restaurants, people and places throughout the North Shore

The North Shore News received almost 6,700 ballots While our poll may not qualify as a scientific survey, the level of participation from our community does lend credibility to the outcome, as do our strict rules on how we count and qualify ballots. Each ballot must have contained a minimum number of categories voted on – and only one ballot per IP address was accepted I want to offer my sincere congratulations to the winners and finalists of the 2023 Readers’ Choice Awards They are most deserving of our recognition as the favourites on the Shore. But, don’t take my word for it; please visit and support these businesses and decide for yourself

Thank you all of those who participated in this year’s poll and congrats again to our winners and finalists Please enjoy this keepsake special publication as a token of your commitment to our community.

You are truly what makes the North Shore special.

TWENTYYEARS OFLOYALTYAND SUCCESS

“There are no words to express our gratitude; it inspires us to do more and continually serve you better ” says Shallaw Kadir, chef/owner of Fishworks, celebrating his twentieth year in the restaurant business on the North Shore Kadir sees the local community as an extension of his family and recognizes that those loyal customers are why Fishworks is such a success

Diversity and inclusion influence how menus are created, global flavours

and varied palettes are represented in thefood, and locally-sourced ingredients top the list Dietary preferences can be accommodated, and the restaurant has partnered with the Ocean Wise Conservation to offer sustainably-raised and caught seafood on the menu

Giving back is important to Fishworks, and they annually support the Heart & Stroke Foundation, local schools’ fundraising events, and participate in the National Chowder Chowdown Festival, a program by Ocean Wise Seafood

OFFERINGTHE UTMOSTIN WELL-BEING

“Thank you for voting us your favourite physiotherapy clinic - we appreciate your support!” says Nico Berg, owner Since 1997, Lynn Valley Physiotherapy has offered unique services and health care options

Take the 1800 square foot modern gym space geared to patient rehabilitation that’s supervised by kinesiologists Or the highly-skilled physiotherapists offering manual therapy, acupuncture, shockwave therapy, intramuscular stimulation, and other therapy options

North Shore residents appreciate the clinic’s experienced, loyal staff that provide safe, friendly, expert care

The team is dedicated to continuing their own growth and education, so they can offer their clients up-to-date services and help them make the best, informed choices for treatment

Lynn Valley Physiotherapy is proud of its strong community ties over the years ranging from providing game day physiotherapy services for local soccer clubs, to donations for a wide range of great causes such as Girls Softball, Argyle Dry Grad, North Van Lions Club, Lynn Valley Days, Harvest Project, and BC Children’s Hospital Jeans Day

AVITAHEALTH.ALWAYS READYTO HELP OUR NORTH SHORE NEIGHBOURS

“Avita was founded on the North Shore in 2001, and my wife, Tanya, our daughters and I, are long time North Vancouver residents,” says Peter Bachmann, co-owner and clinic director of Avita Health and Massage Therapy Center

Tanya is also a co-owner and clinic director of Avita Peter says that he, his family and team at the clinic “love the North Shore and are so proud to be a part of this beautiful place and community We see our mission as serving local residents and improving the quality of their lives” Winning the Readers Choice Platinum Award five years in a row is no small feat, and certainly not something Avita takes for granted

Pride in their business has been an essential key to the company ’ s success, as Avita practitioners are not only chosen for their skills, but also “because we look for heart and values,” says Peter The entire team has a deep sense of caring for their patients As well, they all possess a passion for what they do as professionals Clients can sense when a practitioner is fully invested, as there is a great deal of trust involved in these types of therapies that cannot be discounted Clients can relax when they have

confidence that they are in qualified hands Avita offers a full range of health services provided by their growing team of 44 people, including physiotherapy, registered massage therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture and counselling.

“We have never modelled ourselves after other clinics,” says Peter “For example, our physiotherapists only treat one-on-one and in private rooms This is different than some settings where practitioners see more than one patient at a time or operate in a common gym area ” That undivided attention allows focus for the treatment provider and patient, which can result in better outcomes

“We also offer full-service administrative support for our clients and direct billing for most extended health plans We care a great deal about creating the best possible client experience”

North Shore News readers voted, many who are clients at Avita themselves, based on the shared view that the Avita team genuinely cares about their clients and each other as staff, in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. “We’re very professional, but there’s also a lot of friendly laughter in the halls,” says Peter It’s no surprise that a company

like Avita has long given back to the community both locally and worldwide They’ve been involved with global organizations that fight human trafficking, that build wells in Africa, plus they support the Red Cross Locally, Avita has worked with Field Hockey Canada’s NextGen Adopt-an-Athlete program, and a local competitive swim club

Like any business, staying relevant is crucial to success Recently Avita has been looked to for treatment of women ’ s health and pelvic floor issues, in addition to the numerous other more mainstream services they offer “This is a very intentional addition, as we felt that women ’ s health was an area that wasn’t being adequately provided under one roof,” says Peter “We have three pelvic floor physiotherapists and are looking to further expand in this area ”

Expansion of the clinic space recently, allows for more services, including counselling plus effective modalities like shockwave, dry needling (IMS) and cold laser

Regarding the Readers Choice

Platinum award, Peter states, “We are deeply grateful to our patients for this honour and for their continuing support Thank you!”

MAKING FLOORING RENOVATIONS AS PAIN-FREEAS POSSIBLE

“The staff works really hard at making sure our customers leave with a positive experience,” says End Of The Roll North Shore owner Brad Johnson on receiving another platinum award “So more than anything, I think this is just great for our staff to hear – thank you!”

Johnson and his entire team pride themselves in having created a warm, friendly environment that immediately puts customers at ease as soon as they enter the retail store on Main Street A no-pressure approach by the sales team is appreciated, and the staff’ s depth of knowledge about the products they sell encourages customers to make informed decisions when choosing their flooring The customer’s takeaway is that they are dealing with a trusted retailer Quite simply, they are in good hands

End Of The Roll is a Canadian company with over fifty stores across the country, offering a variety of flooring types, including hardwood, laminate, luxury vinyl, carpet, and area rugs At least a dozen major brand names in flooring are available and sold at competitive prices The brand is well aware of both modern flooring trends and classic, timeless styles and colours, and can offer advice on

products best suited to your space

When it comes to our homes, whether it be renovations or building from the ground up, finding trustworthy retailers and brands we trust is crucial Flooring choice and installation can be daunting, as we all want to get it just right, and in every room of the house At End Of The Roll, they provide “ a great product at a great price, and ensure our customers are comfortable during the whole process, ” says Johnson

The retailer stands behind the promise that their customers will be pleased, by stating that if there are any issues at all, they deal with it promptly and “at the end of the day, our customers will be happy with their floors ”

What else is the secret to success for End Of The Roll, compared to other flooring retailers? What sets them apart from other brands?

Johnson believes it’s all about clear communication offered by his team, making sure their customers understand and are walked through the timelines, know what to expect during the entire process of replacing old flooring or if starting fresh with a new home build Every step is explained, from removal of old floors to installing new flooring, right up

to replacing that last baseboard Expectations are very clear, and that results in satisfied customers who feel heard and valued Like any upgrade to our homes, the financial investment can be substantial, and we all seek great value for our hard-earned dollars

“Usually getting your flooring done is close to the last step in any renovation process, and by that point, you ’ re done with it You just want to enjoy your home,” says Johnson “So, we make that last mile of reno work as pain-free as possible Our clients always claim it was so much easier than they expected”

Proud to be part of the business community on the North Shore, End of the Roll demonstrates their community spirit by supporting The Trilogy Foundation The foundation helps support families across Canada who have been affected by tragedy, disaster and poverty

“Thanks to everyone that voted for our team to be recognized for their efforts”

Black Bear Neighbourhood Pub

Shore Disability Resource Centre and parent advisory councils

“A title and an accomplishment that we are both extremely proud of while being very humbled by all the love and support,” says general manager Grant Dawson in response to their recent platinum award

For over twenty-five years The Black Bear Neighbourhood Pub in Lynn Valley has been recognized as favourite neighbourhood pub on the North Shore “Guests are loyal because we try everyday to go the extra step for guests whenever we can We might not always achieve it,

but we try every day,” says owner Ron Slinger “We offer good value and good service, and we get involved in the community,” says Grant “We get to know our guests, so they feel like part of the family”

Our Staff are an important part of the service the Bear provides their guests Some staff members have been with us since the pub opened Consistency is crucial in the success of any restaurant, and Black Bear’s guests praise the quality and value of their food “Food is our loyalty

builder You can get a gin and tonic anywhere,” says Slinger Pub favourites like hearty homemade soups, chicken wings, and Instagram-worthy burgers are on offer, and their signature Southwest Chicken Tortellini is well loved Weekly specials, a “fresh sheet” menu, and an impressive selection of craft beers on tap make it all a pub should be The Bear’s homey feel, and cozy stone fireplace create an atmosphere that’s relaxed and fun A great place to watch the game, join in on Monday trivia nights and gather with friends The Black Bear Neighbourhood Pub values their important role in the community and contributes to local causes and charities by providing donations and door prizes, including the North

Presently faced with the possibility of the District of North Vancouver approving a tear down of the pub, Grant says, “if we can no longer be Lynn Valley’s go-to place, we wish to say thank you for all the love and support the community has provided us over the past quarter century We do however hope the District sees the value in keeping us and that we can continue being here for everyone in the community for a long time to come ”

We’re proud to be voted your Favourite Seniors Home Care once again! “With Nurse Next Door, help is only a phone call away. You are not alone. We are here to help.” Vince Sara Executive Director North Shore Isolation is a leading cause of depression in seniors. Our carefully matched, trusted caregivers offer social interation for physical and mental well-being. A nutritious diet comes with many health benefits. Our caregivers love to prepare delicious meals, including specific ethnic dishes if requested. We offer light housekeeping services to help our clients with daily activities. This way, seniors can stay at home in a safe and clean environment For optimal health, our Registered Nurses and Licensed/Registered Practical Nurses help prevent illness and increase comfort at home. It takes time and energy to care for a loved one. Respite care offers temporary relief so you can recharge and enjoy time with mom or dad. From bathing to shaving, we design personal in-home senior care to support day-to-day independence. Without reliable transportation, it can be tough to get to appointments and activities. Let us arrange for transportation and accompaniment with a friendly and attentive caregiver Whether it’s 3 in the afternoon, or 3 in the middle of the night, we support clients who need care any time. Services can be scheduled daily, weekly or monthly
