Description This is the most westerly Vancouver riding. It is bounded on the east by Arbutus Street, 16th Avenue West, Oak Street, 41st Avenue West and Granville Street, and then moves west between Burrard Inlet in the north and North Arm and Georgia Strait in the south. The west boundary is formed by the University Endowment Lands to Point Grey.

The 2001 census found 36 per cent of the people in this riding were immigrants, with Chinese-Canadians forming the largest community.

This is predominantly a residential riding, though the University of British Columbia is located here. A remarkable 38.5 per cent of residents hold a university degree – the second-highest proportion of graduates in any riding in the country. This is also Canada's sixth-wealthiest riding, with average family incomes of $112,155. The average home here costs a staggering $552,781. Unemployment was 6.3 per cent in 2001.

Vancouver Quadra was established in 1947. In the 1996 redistribution, it lost about half its population and saw significant additions from Vancouver South and Vancouver Centre. In 2004, 28 per cent of the riding went to neighbouring ridings, while 24 per cent of Vancouver Centre was added.

Population: 112,985
