Downtown Vancouver

The City of Vancouver is located in the southwest corner of Canada in the province of British Columbia, at about 49° Latitude and 123° Longitude, next to the Pacific Ocean.

Vancouver is growing. It is Canada s third largest city, its busiest port, a gateway to the Pacific, a transportation terminus, tourist destination, centre for business, and home to more than half a million people in a region of two million. This city by the sea attracts business, residents, and millions of visitors each year.

Every day, more than half a million people enter the Downtown core. The area - also known as the Central Business District - is a triangle of land nestled between Burrard Inlet and False Creek. The area - bordered by Stanley Park, the West End, and Cambie Street - is a patchwork of distinct communities, including Yaletown, Gastown, Coal Harbour, and the East False Creek.

Downtown is the city s and region s largest shopping district. Major department stores are located at its centre at the intersection of Georgia and Granville streets. At its eastern end, Gastown s night clubs, restaurants and speciality shops combine with the area s historic charm to make it a major tourist attraction. Similarly, Chinatown s ethnic character and speciality shops combine the area s unique heritage buildings to attract visitors and regional residents alike.
