CBC readers voted and the results are in: Steveston is the best neighbourhood in Metro Vancouver. Sorry everyone else!
After over half a million votes, Steveston beat out 192 other neighbourhoods. We’re not overly surprised, as Steveston has a lot of fantastic activities and interesting things to check out. Did you know it has the largest fishing port in Canada?
The suburb of Richmond won over 61 percent of the vote, beating the other finalist, Mount Pleasant in Vancouver, relatively easily. For diehard Vancouver fans, this is a bit of a hard pill to swallow. But, you do gotta hand it to Steveston for such a blowout victory.

The winning neighbourhood is a tourist destination for a reason. It has some amazing historic sites all with a great small-town vibe. What we’re trying to say here is that the win was deserved and that Steveston is a rad place.
Now that they’ve won the 6-week competition, it’s a great chance to check out why they won. Take a stroll on the boardwalk, check out some of the classic buildings, or explore the historic Gulf of Georgia Cannery building. You’ve got tons of options!
