Our Unique Advantages
Vancouver is a city unlike any other, providing a wealth of unique advantages for both its residents and its businesses
Living in Vancouver
Living in Vancouver comes with economic and political stability, universal healthcare, diversity in culture and environment, and world-class education and infrastructure, as well as spectacular natural surroundings.
Vancouver boasts a clean economy known around the world for innovations in clean technology, clean energy, green building, and circularity.
Place of Ideas
Vancouver has always been a place of ideas — a hub where entrepreneurs, innovation and creativity intersect. “Progressive” and “forward-thinking” are words typically used to describe the city.
As countries compete for the brightest and best, all-star talent is increasingly top of mind for entrepreneurs and businesses alike — talent that’s educated, skilled in niche areas and globally minded. Many companies are drawn to Vancouver for this very reason.
Today’s global connectedness only reinforces Vancouver’s deep links to its diverse, multicultural roots — including ties to local indigenous cultures, Europe and Asia. Vancouver embodies multiculturalism in every sense.
Smart & Beautiful City
Consistently ranked one of the most liveable cities in the world, Vancouver is celebrated for its striking natural beauty, ready access to beaches and the outdoors, mild year-round climate and steadfast commitment to public transit and other active transportation modes including walking and cycling.
A city of economic reconciliation
The city we call Vancouver is built on the unceded and traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, who have stewarded the surrounding waters, forests, and lands since time beyond memory. We are committed to principles of economic reconciliation.
