Live, work and study in Vancouver!
Vancouver has been consistently ranked among the world’s most livable cities, and it’s easy to see why. Vancouver’s lifestyle is a big part of its appeal, and Vancouverites enjoy some of the mildest weather in Canada, with easy access to outdoor recreation, world-class restaurants and a vibrant arts and culture scene. Go hiking on the North Shore mountains, kayaking at English Bay, or grab some sushi or a beer at a brewpub with friends. Whatever it is you’re looking for, Vancouver’s probably got it.
Vancouver is located on the West Coast of British Columbia and is Canada’s third larg-est metropolitan area, after Toronto and Montreal. If you’re interested in exploring West-ern Canada, Vancouver is conveniently located near many other popular travel destina-tions such as Whistler, Victoria, Tofino and Banff.
A Great Place For Education
Vancouver is a multi-cultural city, with forty percent of its population comprised of immigrants. Vancouverites are open to different cultures and are welcoming to visitors. And you can also expect to find a lot of good restaurants serving cuisines from all over the world!
- Vancouver is often called Hollywood North because it is the second-largest production centre for TV shows and third largest for movies outside of Los Angeles and New York. Once you get to know it, you’ll start spotting famous and not-so-famous Vancouver lo-cations in some of your favourite movies and TV shows.
- Vancouver’s Stanley Park, located right near the city centre, is one of the world’s largest urban parks and is 10% larger than Central Park in NYC. It’s a great place to explore on foot or by bike.
- Vancouver hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics, even though it’s the warmest city in Canada, except for maybe Victoria. We have the Olympics to thank for the Canada Line, which makes up part of our award-winning public transit system and connects Vancouver International Airport with the city centre.
- The environmental organization Greenpeace started in Vancouver in 1971. Vancouverites are environmentally conscious, and you will notice a commitment to the environment among many locals, whether it’s with cycling infrastructure such as the bike lanes that connect neighbourhoods all over the city, or with support for environmental causes and green energy initiatives, people here take this stuff seriously. It’s also the only major city in North America that doesn’t have a freeway running through it.
- Tourism is a huge part of the economy in Vancouver, and Vancouver’s cruise ship terminal at Canada Place is the 4th largest in the world. Most of the cruise ships that leave from Vancouver are going to Alaska.
