Vancouver was chosen as the best place to live in North America (and number five in the world) in Mercer’s 2016 Quality of Living survey.
Renowned for its scenic beauty and endless opportunities for outdoor activities, Vancouver is also a cosmopolitan city with all the urban amenities – fine dining, shopping, museums, galleries, music, and theater. Stroll through diverse neighborhoods or relax on sandy beaches. Visit the aquarium, take a city tour or stroll around the seawall around Stanley Park, the city’s oasis, or explore Vancouver’s North Shore. Vancouver is also one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities in Canada with 52 percent of the population speaking a first language other than English.
