About Vancouver

The city of Vancouver lies between the beautiful Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Ocean on Canada's West Coast. It is the most populous city in British Columbia and the third largest urban centre in the country, with residents sometimes referring to the town as Metro Vancouver. However, despite being an urban hub, the city also prides itself on being one of the world’s most environmentally conscious metropolises, offering residents and tourists an ecotourism industry they can enjoy.

Many consider Vancouver one of the most liveable cities in the world, thanks to its vibrant neighbourhoods, friendly people, and world-class dining establishments. The city's thriving international real estate market and ethnically diverse communities are additional advantages.

No other Canadian city can compare with Vancouver's perfect mixture of coastal views and stunning mountain sceneries. The unique experience is one of the main reasons why more people are choosing to call Vancouver home.
