Victoria-Fraserview

Victoria-Fraserview encompasses a large area of residential and commercial development. It is a multiculturally diverse area, with a large Indo-Canadian population, and a great destination for fresh produce, sarees, fabrics, imported goods, and international cuisine. Victoria-Fraserview is on Vancouver's south slope to the Fraser River, between the Knight Street Bridge and Killarney.

Neighbourhood history and heritage

Drawn to the vast virgin forests on the northern bank of the Fraser River, the first non-indigenous families settled in the Victoria-Fraserview area in the 1860s. A small population established a settlement near the southern ends of Main and Fraser Streets.
