Welcome to East Vancouver, a culturally diverse area between Vancouver’s “West Side” and Burnaby. This part of the city is known for its integrated energetic atmosphere with an expansive mix of immigrants of Italian, Greek, Croatian, Polish, and Asian descent. There is a rich culture of food and laid back attitude living harmoniously in the neighbourhood. Now, due to rising house prices on the West Side, East Van is a hot market for residential real estate with young families lining up to buy homes with a backyard close to the urban core. Drive from street to street, neighbourhood to neighbourhood across the East Side and you’ll notice the cultural influences changing, making for a fun and diverse community feeling.
