One of the original East Vancouver communities.

Family-oriented and central to all major amenities, this constantly growing neighbourhood checks all the boxes.

Collingwood is a family-oriented, working class neighbourhood with quick access to a full range of amenities. It’s one of the fastest growing, and constantly developing communities in Vancouver.

On The Map

Collingwood is located on the east side of Vancouver and bordered by Victoria, Killarney, Renfrew Heights and Boundary Road.


This area begs you go explore, play and relax.

Although Collingwood is dense with residential and commercial properties, they've made way for some great parks!

Norquay Park, on the south west corner of the community, has a basketball court, splash park and baseball diamond.  Gaston Park, which is wrapped by several highrises, has tennis courts, ball diamonds and a playground.  It’s also great place to take your dog for a walk.


Collingwood Neighbourhood House offers activities that help connect the community.

From commuting to school for little ones, Collingwood is loaded with essential amenities.

Collingwood Neighbourhood House offers several activities for residents including music, dance, arts and gardening. They also have a great recreation program to help members connect, stay healthy and have fun.

Commuting downtown is a breeze in Collingwood.  The Joyce-Collingwood station and the 29th Avenue station both lie within the community and connect residents to Downtown Vancouver in minutes.  

Attractive to growing families, the neighbourhood offers six schools (Graham Bruce, Grenfell, Carleton, Norquay, Nootka and Renfrew) as well as Killarney Secondary School which is nearby. BCIT in Burnaby is only a short drive away and offers excellent post-secondary programs. 


Authentic & local shops and services speckle Kingsway & Joyce Street, the main thoroughfares.

You’ll find fresh veggie markets, big box groceries & pharmacies, authentic cuisine and a chocolate factory that would make Willy Wonka proud.

Wander down Kingsway and get overwhelmed with the amount of shops and services on hand.  From day to day essentials to unique boutique shops, you can find lots of hidden gems here. If you’re in need of some big box shopping, head north west on Kingsway to Metrotown for some groceries as Superstore, a movie at Cineplex or stroll the mall for retail therapy.
