There are 9 windows in total on the north side, all created by Hugh Powell (1920-1994). The top panel of each of these 9 windows illustrates characters from the Old Testament. Each window also has a distinctive colour and bears a representative scene of British Columbia. A special feature of these windows is the use of lightly stained glass on the boarders of each window to allow for maximum light exposure.
