Description This is Vancouver's downtown business core, north of 16th Avenue West, Marpole Avenue, Wolfe Avenue and 16th Avenue, and between Cambie Street, Dunsmuir Street, Main Street, 2nd Avenue East and Ontario Street in the east, and Airbutus Street in the west. It includes much of English Bay and False Creek.

The 2001 census counted 105,998 residents, of whom more than 32 per cent were immigrants. Renters outnumbered homeowners nearly 3 to 1.

Vancouver Centre serves as the headquarters for many of B.C.'s largest companies and government-service providers. Almost 36 per cent of the people here hold university degrees, the fourth highest percentage among Canadian ridings. The average family income was $75,756 in 2001 and unemployment was 7.3 per cent.

Vancouver Centre riding was established in 1914. In 2004, it retained three-quarters of its residents and added about 6,000 from Vancouver East.

Population: 105,998
