Vancouver East is a federal electoral district in British Columbia, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1935. The riding of Vancouver East is the poorest in Canada with a median household income of $22,144.
Vancouver East is known as a New Democratic Party stronghold; the NDP and its Co-operative Commonwealth Federation predecessor have won all but two elections in the riding since its creation in 1933. Both losses (1974 and 1993) have come at the hands of Liberal candidates who failed to retain the seat at the next election. The Conservative Party and its right-leaning predecessors have always fared poorly in the riding, rarely garnering more than 20 percent of the vote.
