Canadian federal election results in Greater Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast

This is page shows results of Canadian federal elections in Greater Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast.

Regional profile

The city of Vancouver, along with the inner suburbs south of Burrard Inlet, tend to be very liberal and have always been heavily supportive of the New Democratic Party and Liberals. This is primarily due to a sense of liberal activism in the area (including strong support for legal prostitution, same-sex marriage and the legalization of marijuana). Unsurprisingly, the more affluent inner city ridings in the west (Centre, Quadra) tend to favour the Liberals, while the relatively poorer eastern inner city ridings (East, Kingsway) are more supportive of the NDP. The outer suburbs farther east and north of Burrard Inlet tend to lean more in the conservative direction, although primarily only on economic issues; historically the eastern ridings were NDP strongholds until the rise of the Reform Party. Since then, the former Reform and Canadian Alliance parties did very well in those regions, although it has not necessarily translated into stronger results for the current Conservatives, who lost one seat and saw their margin decrease substantially in their three remaining seats.
