Vancouver is known around the world as one of the most desirable places to live. Located between ocean and mountains, Vancouver balances a gorgeous natural setting with a diverse mix of cultures. Vancouver also boasts world-class shopping, restaurants and cultural events. Beautiful public parks and beaches surround the city's harbour, offering plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities year-round.
North of Vancouver, the snow-capped coastal mountains provide a stunning backdrop to the city's skyline and endless opportunities for weekend getaways to Whistler in winter and summer. Vancouver's mild climate makes it possible to ski, sail and golf all in a single day.
