This neighbourhood doesn’t just have character. It is character.

Resilient and proud like the people and businesses who call this neighbourhood home, Strathcona, is like no other part of the city. Its repurposed industrial buildings and proximity to downtown make this still affordable neighbourhood a mecca for artists, designers, musicians, and creative entrepreneurs. Strathcona is much more than a location. It’s a place with diverse people—different cultures, experiences and backgrounds—sharing one community.
