The History of Cambie
Cambie Street is rich in history; named after Henry Cambie – an engineer from the Canadian Pacific Railway, and was a gift thanks to a land grant that was extended back in the 1800s.
Initial settlers arrives in 1874 and claimed 65 hectares of pasture land, which is now largely Douglas Park situated along South Cambie, and once the railroad came through the region in 1910, Chinese settlers were able to begin accessing the area and farming it.
Cambie continues to be a growing community and thriving real estate investment opportunity, rich in history and filled with an endless future.

Although slow to become the bustling community it is today, the 1940’s saw Cambie Street increasing in residential and commercial properties, much of which you can still find along South Cambie; including the RCMP training site on Heather Street.
