Mount Pleasant Community Profile

Mount Pleasant stretches from Cambie Street to Clarke Drive and from Great Northern Way to 16thAve.

It is sometimes referred to as Vancouver’s “first” Suburb. In 1890 the first street cars appeared in Mount Pleasant. This made it very appealing to working class families, as it was an easy transit route to Vancouver City Center, False Creek and Brewery Creek (which was the center for business in the 1890’s).
