The West Vancouver Memorial Library provides free exam invigilation services to students attending West Vancouver schools as well as to West Vancouver residents and business owners.
Please note that due to construction, exam invigilation will not be available as of June 1, 2016. We will update this page when the service reopens. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. While our service is unavailable, we recommend Athabasca University's Invigilation Network.
