Why you’ll love moving to Vancouver

The weather. During the summer, there’s a good chance you’ll see temps into the 70s, which is much cooler than inland Canadian cities like Nelson or Cranbrook. Oh, and you’ll get plenty of sunshine. Winters in Vancouver are mild. Average winter temps peak at about 48 F. As for snow, you won’t get much of it, about 15 inches per year. What you will get a lot of is rain and fog. The city gets about 45 inches of rain per year.

Urban Planning. The reason why Vancouver is such an attractive city to call home is because of its urban planning initiative, called “Vancourversim.” Basically, it means tall slim towers for density, widely separated by low rise buildings for views, light, and air. This allows for more parks, walkable streets, public spaces, and sustainable transit. The only downside is that it’s this kind of livability that drives up the cost of living and the housing market within the city.

Outdoor Beauty. Due to its prime location near the Pacific Ocean and Coast Mountains, you’ll experience stunning views at all times. On clear days, you’ll be able to see the North Shore Mountains and Mount Baker.

Ethnic Diversity. In 2008, there were more than 5 million visible minorities in the country, making up 16% of the total population.

Outdoor activities. Vancouver offers some of the best outdoor experiences known to man.

Here are just a few activities you should try after moving to Vancouver, BC:

  • Kayak the Indian Arm (a glacial fjord carved into a stretch of mountain).
  • Go backcountry camping or car camping.
  • Scuba dive at Whytecliff Park – you might just see an octopus!
  • Snowboard the North Shore for a world-class snowboarding experience.
  • Snowshoe the North Shore.

  • Play some beach volleyball on Jericho Beach.
  • Take a stroll, jog, bike, or walk at Stanley Park Seawall, the 3rd largest urban park in North America. Don’t miss the Vancouver Aquarium while you’re there.

Jobs. Vancouver is one of the nation’s largest industrial centers thanks to its location on the Pacific Rim. Its port activities generate over 10 billion annually. Vancouver is also home to forest and mining companies, software development, biotech, aerospace, video game development, animation, and film. In fact, Vancouver is often called “Hollywood North.” Tourism also drives the economy, as many people pass through the city on cruise vacations.
