City of Richmond


With a population last estimated at 207,500 people, Richmond is an ethnically diverse and dynamic urban centre with a unique mix of residential and commercial property, agricultural lands, industrial parks, waterways and natural areas.

Richmond is celebrated for its multicultural community. Much of the recent population growth is made up of Asian immigrants. People of Chinese or South Asian ancestry represent more than sixty per cent of Richmond residents.

Home to the Vancouver International Airport, the City of Richmond is a destination filled with attractions, including: two national historic sites; Steveston Village, which becomes the town of Storybrooke for the TV series Once Upon a Time; and the Olympic Experience at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

Richmond is also known for providing an extraordinary shopping experience and for its world-class food scene, with an unlimited variety of international cuisine to fit anyone’s palate.
