Discover Heritage

Map Guides

Take yourself on a tour of historic Vancouver neighbourhoods

VHF has created a series of historic neighbourhood map guides. Available here to download and print or to use on a desktop or mobile device, each map guide provides a walkable route to follow and learn about local history and heritage places.

Limited copies of printed map guides are available at the VHF Office, located at 303 – 3102 Main Street. Guides currently in print: Historic Chinatown (English & Chinese) and Historic Japanese Canadian District. Map guides cannot be mailed. Please contact to arrange a time to pickup during office hours. You can also find PDF versions of all our map guides below.


Are you an organization that would like to display our map guides? You can support us and help new copies be printed by becoming a sponsor.

If you would like to help us update an existing map guide or have an idea for a new map guide, please get in touch!
