Vancouver City Guide
Nestled between the shores of the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains, the Greater Vancouver Area is the 3rd-largest urban centre in Canada and the most populous city in the province of British Columbia. There are more than 630,000 residents in Metro Vancouver and almost 2.5 million people that call the Greater Vancouver Area home.
While Vancouver is known for its green space and access to sea and mountains, it’s also the city with the highest urban density in Canada—with over 5,400 people per square kilometre. This density makes Metro Vancouver the 4th-most densely populated city in North America, behind New York, San Francisco and Mexico City. According to the Globalization and World Cities Research Network (GaWC), Vancouver is classified as a Beta global city: A hub city that links moderate economic regions into a world economy.
Despite its size, Vancouver is consistently voted one of the most liveable places on Earth. It’s easy to see why. Outdoor enthusiasts love the easy access to the rugged outdoors. Foodies love the local eateries and fusion blends this culturally diverse city offers. Artists love the rich history and strong local support. Even a casual bike ride or stroll in Stanley Park—1,000 acres of protected woodlands—is a chance to escape into nature, right in the heart of the city.
Commuters to and from the city can opt to use the city’s public bus system of the SkyTrain, a rapid transit rail system that connects the city to surrounding suburban communities. If cycling is more your speed, sign up for Mobi, the public bike share system, which was launched in 2016.
Vancouver is one of Canada’s warmest cities in the winter and coolest summers, by Canadian standards. It’s also one of the wettest cities in Canada. However, the amount and type of precipitation vary across the Lower Mainland. In Vancouver, snow falls only 11 days, a year, on average, making the city the 4th-mildest for Canadian winters (behind Victoria, Nanaimo and Duncan, all of which are located on Vancouver Island). This temperate climate allows for a long growing season—giving gardeners an average of 237 days to grow a variety of flowers and food.
One interesting fact about the city is that its growth and journey has been visually documented throughout its entire history. At age 171 in 2017, the city was established just seven years after photography was commercially available. That’s allowed professional and amateur photographers to capture and document this iconic Canadian city’s evolution over the decades.
Combine all of this with B.C.’s thriving economy and it becomes clear why Vancouver is both a top tourist destination as well as a sought-after place to live within the Canadian real estate market.
