Areas of the city

Granville Island


The City of Vancouver is made up of a number of smaller neighbourhoods and communities; however, not everyone agrees on all of the names and boundaries of these areas.

Aside from identifying the distinct culture and character of different areas of Vancouver’s diverse population, neighbourhood boundaries provide a way to break up the city’s large geographical area for delivering services and resources.

Areas of the City

Here on the City of Vancouver website, we refer to areas, not neighbourhoods. From Arbutus to the West End, you can learn more about a particular part of the city.

Each of the 21 city areas has its own page with community-specific information: local services and amenities, city news, projects and initiatives, and a calendar of events. Areas of the city may also include several smaller neighbourhoods that would not generate enough news and events on their own.

Ask. Tell. Connect.
