*Please read below for more details about the Eastside Local Card:

The Exchange Inner City Eastside Local Card is a rewards card for local residents of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside and surrounding inner city neighbourhoods.

Throughout 2017 and 2018, Exchange Inner City surveyed the shops, shoppers, residents, and businesses in the neighbourhood. It was found that many residents reported feeling isolated and excluded by new businesses in the area; and that many businesses were looking for ways to support the local low-income community. Therefore, the Local Card was developed! This card is provided at no cost to local residents, and entitles the card bearer to rewards, discounts or special offers as determined by participating businesses.

For more information visit the Local Card website.
