Description This central Vancouver riding encompasses an area running from Boundary Road in the east to Oak Street in the west, bordered on the south by 41st Avenue West, 41st Avenue East, School Avenue, Tyne Street and 49th Avenue East, and on the north by 16th Avenue West, 16th Avenue East, 15th Avenue East and Grandview Highway South.

The 2001 census found just one-third of residents here listed English as their mother tongue. More than 55 per cent are immigrants. Nearly 40 per cent are ethnically Chinese – the second-highest such proportion of any riding.

The area is mainly residential. The service sector is the major employer, along with manufacturing and retail. The average family income in 2001 was $54,724, and unemployment was 8.2 per cent.

The riding of Vancouver Kingsway existed from 1953 until 1986. It was re-established in 1996 from half of Vancouver Quadra, one-quarter of Burnaby-Kingsway, and smaller portions of Vancouver East and Vancouver South. In 2004, 11 per cent of the population was redistributed to other ridings, while about 7,000 people were added from Vancouver Quadra and 1,830 from Vancouver East.

Population: 115,325
