Cedar Cottage is one of the most ethnically diverse neighbourhoods in East Vancouver. The neighbourhood is bordered by Fraser St. on the west, Nanaimo St. on the east, 41st Avenue on the south and 16th Avenue on the north. The area was first settled in 1888 when Arthur Wilson bought a plot of land and began the Cedar Cottage Nursery.
Cedar Cottage tends to be younger and more diverse than much of the city. Only a third of residents (34.7%) in Cedar Cottage speak English as a mother tongue, compared to roughly half of residents in Vancouver as a whole. Chinese is the second most common mother tongue, spoken by 34.1% of residents. Like most of East Vancouver, Cedar Cottage used to be predominantly working class but rising house prices have made the area increasing popular with young professionals and young families.
