Belcarra is the only community in this area that is not growing substantially. Even neighbouring Anmore, another tiny community has grown and changed, but Belcarra has remained a relatively small community.

With a population of 690 as of 2010, it has the lowest population of any independent settlement in the Vancouver area.
