Get to Know Vancouver and What It Offers for Expats

One of the cleanest, friendliest, and most populous cities in Canada, Vancouver regularly features among studies of "the best cities in the world", not least thanks to a diverse culture and stunning natural landscapes. Expats are drawn by a huge variety of business and employment opportunities, including Canada's largest port and a variety of major biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and information systems concerns. Major companies based in Vancouver include Electronic Arts, QLT Inc., MDA, and Ballard Power Systems, while a thriving tourist trade also offers plenty of job opportunities. The overall picture of Vancouver is one of bustling trade, a high standard of living, widespread multiculturalism, and a strong sense of civic pride, making this city a delight to settle in.
