Vancouver has a population of about 603,500 (2011). The city is made up of several distinct areas, each with its own character and ‘vibe’. The City of Vancouver website also maintains a webpage for each of these communities with area-specific information.

The Faculty Staff Housing & Relocation Services team is also pleased to offer in the following print-ready profiles of various neighbourhoods located in the City of Vancouver. These profiles include data on housing, demographics, and schools in each neighbourhood. We shall be adding profiles on Burnaby and Richmond in the future.
