What is it like to live in Vancouver the abridged version

Life in Vancouver by Matt Oakes

This answer could be really long, so I’m going to write about what you have specified. Feel free to ask us directly for specific information through the contact form to the right.

Daily Life: Vancouver is an incredibly beautiful city and when coupled with the opportunity that Canada offers – It truly is a special place to be. The outdoor lifestyle of the city offers a wealth of exploration possibilities including camping, ocean, mountains, local islands to explore. The city itself is abuzz with local restaurants, bars, and coffee shops and during the summer the beaches of Vancouver are good fun. The Spanish Banks or maybe even a little Wreck beach can be a lot of fun. Make sure to check out Jericho beach for a paddleboard and the most fantastic view of the city from the water. However! Van can be super dreary 9 months of the year. I mean very little sun whatsoever. This coupled with the sheer expense of the city really does bring it back into the average range.

The tech sector is growing fast and Canadas progressive views makes it possible for people of talent to move here.
