Vancouver Granville is a federal electoral district in British Columbia, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 2015. The district includes all or significant portions of the Kerrisdale, Marpole, Oakridge, Shaughnessy, South Cambie, Fairview and Riley Park–Little Mountain neighbourhoods. Based on the Canada 2011 Census data, the population of the district is 99,886.
Vancouver Granville was created by the 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution and was legally defined in the 2013 representation order. It came into effect upon the call of the 42nd Canadian federal election, which happened in October 2015. It was created out of the electoral districts of Vancouver Centre (38%), Vancouver Quadra (18%), Vancouver Kingsway (19%) and Vancouver South (26%).
In April 2019, the district's first MP, Jody Wilson-Raybould, was expelled from the Liberal Party, over her handling of the SNC-Lavalin affair. Even though she was kicked out of the party, some of the province's residents are still supporting her in the upcoming federal election as a Independent MP candidate.
