Welcome to Strathcona, a place for all who are different.
The Strathcona Business Improvement Association operates on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy ̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sə ̓lílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh). Their cultures and economies have shaped the district since time immemorial and remain integral to the community today.
Strathcona is a place that celebrates humanity, expanded worldviews, and challenging preconceived notions. We encourage the people and places that make up our community to maintain their distinct character, while understanding and appreciating what makes each other unique. We believe that everyone has a place in Strathcona, especially those who are unafraid to go against the norm. We embrace and advocate for all who establish their lives, identities and livelihoods here.
Strengthening Strathcona together.
Our programs have been developed to support the wellbeing of the businesses and people in the district. That’s why we listen carefully to the needs of the people who make up our neighbourhood, and invest in initiatives and services that promote the safety, health, and sustainability of our community.
