The only Vancouver Neighbourhood
with its own little mountain

Thanks to the success of Canada Line, the Cambie Corridor has become a vibrant and beautiful hub of activity in Vancouver that has appeal to all ages, income levels and ethnic groups.

The neighbourhood known as Cambie was part of an original land grant given to the Canadian Pacific Railway in the 1800s. The area was named after Henry Cambie who was a CPR engineer in charge of the railway’s western division. William Mackie, a gold miner, was part of one of the first wave of non-native settlers who arrived around 1874. Mackie claimed 65 hectares of a former elk pasture as his own, and that land is now Douglas Park on West 22nd.


Schools

The availability of educational institutions in the immediate area is superior. Emily Carr Elementary and Edith Cavell Elementary offer nearby instruction to the younger members of families. Teens have the opportunity to attend Eric Hamber Secondary School.

Unique for this part of Vancouver, there are also two French schools – Rose-Des-Vents and Ecole Secondaire Jules Verne – both operated by the Conseil Scolaire Francophone de la Columbie-Britannique.

There is also the availability of private institutions in the area including York House, St. Georges Academy and Little Flower Academy – all within a 10 minute drive.


Location

Cambie is a rectangular area nestled between one of the City’s largest parks on one side and the upscale neighbourhood of Shaughnessy on the other. Oak Street and Ontario Street serves as the west/east borders with 16th Avenue and 41st Avenue serving as the north/south boundaries. The southeast portion of the area is known as Little Mountain and is Vancouver’s highest point, as well as its geographical centre.


Cambie successfully provides the opportunity to never have to leave the neighbourhood to shop

Housing

Cambie is an eclectic mix of low-rise, mid-rise rental and condo buildings mixed in with a varied assortment of single-family homes. A large number of heritage houses from the 1910-1920 era dot the northern tip of Cambie. A 1912 Tudor style building on Heather Street – housing a former RCMP training facility – is just one of the examples of these heritage houses. An abundance of these multi-level heritage homes have been renovated to strata-titled properties, or to accommodate rental suites, in order to satisfy the large number of young professionals and students who are attracted to the area due to its close proximity to Downtown and to Langara College.


Recreation

The area’s anchors for recreation are the beautiful Douglas Park, Riley Park and Queen Elizabeth Park. It is a homeowner’s dream to have such a wealth of accessible park space in their immediate neighbourhood.
Douglas Park Community Centre is one of Vancouver’s most popular neighbourhood recreational facilities. The building was once the site of the original Douglas Park Pavilion which stood from 1928 until 1966 when the new Community Centre was constructed.
Off-leash areas for dog owners also abound with locations at 37th & Oak, Douglas Park and Queen Elizabeth Park.
Soccer, baseball, field hockey, football, walking, jogging, track, dog walking – the list goes on and on about what is recreationally available for residents in Cambie.


Shopping and Commercial

With Oakridge Centre just outside its southern tip and the two corners of shopping malls at King Edward and Oak Street in the northern section of the neighbourhood, not to mention the local shops along the Cambie Street corridor, Cambie provides ample shopping opportunities for its residents.

Because of a number of the larger chain outlets selling everything from groceries to liquor and gas, combined with a proliferation of small neighbourhood shops, Cambie successfully provides the opportunity to never have to leave the neighbourhood to shop.

Restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, small eateries, specialty shops – all of these abound in the area as well. From White Spot to the Dragon Ball Teahouse; from Pied A Terre featuring fine French cuisine to one of the largest specialty liquor stores in the Lower Mainland; from Landmark HotPot House to Henry’s Bistro in the King Edward shopping centre; Cambie provides its residents with a myriad of choices for their culinary requirements.

Cambie is also awash in medical facilities and services. BC Children’s Hospital, BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre and the headquarters of Canadian Blood Services just as few of the medical service centres that have been built in this area.

Two notable Vancouver landmarks also have their homes in Cambie. The world acclaimed Van Dusen Botanical Gardens on Oak Street, as well as the tourist mecca of Queen Elizabeth Park complete with the Bloedell Conservatory attracts tourists and other Lower Mainlanders alike to Cambie.

Transportation

Cambie is one of the most easily accessed areas of Vancouver. The main north to south arteries of Oak Street and Cambie Street provide direct routes to connecting highways, as well as quick access to the Vancouver International Airport and the Downtown core. The east to west routes of West 16th and West 41st easily transport commuters to the Westside campuses of UBC and Langara College.

Public transportation is frequent and plentiful to all areas of Cambie. The Canada Line is its backbone, offering quick and efficient transportation to Downtown and the airport while being unobtrusive to the surface of the Cambie neighbourhood.

Canada Line, with stations at 41st Avenue and King Edward, has brought access and vitality to the Cambie corridor. The tasteful architectural addition of these stations and the accessibility they offer has been a boon to the area and holds promise for significant development in the future.
