Canning Vale is named for its location which is a low lying area near the Canning River, which was named after George Canning, former Prime Minister of Great Britain. Population was minimal until the late 1980s, following industrial development in the 1970s. This industrial development has now grown and banister rd is now a complete industrial and commercial site.
The industrial growth, did not deter the residential growth from thriving. In the early 1990's the population underwent massive growth and grew to over 9000 in 2006. Even today there are more estates still being built and expanded into the neighboring Southern River areas. In 2011 the population reached 30,000, which was has been largely due to the reasonable affordability mix of each dwelling type- leased, owner occupied and mortgaged.
