East Vancouver (also “East Van” or the “East Side”) is a region within the City of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Geographically, East Vancouver is bordered to the north by Burrard Inlet, to the south by the Fraser River, and to the east by the city of Burnaby. East Vancouver is divided from Vancouver’s “West Side” (not to be confused with the “West End” of Downtown Vancouver or with West Vancouver) by Ontario Street.

The City of Vancouver identifies seven communities as being entirely in the East Vancouver area: Grandview-Woodland, Hastings-Sunrise, Kensington-Cedar Cottage, Killarney, Renfrew-Collingwood, Strathcona and Victoria-Fraserview. The 2001 census identified 220,490 people living in these communities (approximately 40% of the city’s population).

Two communities, Mount Pleasant and Riley Park-Little Mountain, straddle both East Vancouver and the West Side.
Two communities are part of East Vancouver but often referred to separately because of their unique place in the city’s fabric: the Downtown Eastside and Chinatown.
In addition to East Vancouver, the City of Vancouver is made up of the West End, Downtown, Downtown Eastside, and West Side. The Downtown area is further differentiated into Coal Harbour, Yaletown, Gastown, and other semi-distinct regions.
