> One of the World’s Most Livable Cities
Vancouver is a city with a progressive urban lifestyle, a rich multicultural profile, and a thriving economy. And it all unfolds against an unforgettable backdrop of oceanfront parks, shining glass towers, and lush mountains.
Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities on the planet. This is in large part thanks to careful, intelligent urban planning. The city boasts innovative urban design, breathtaking parks and gardens, and public spaces that rival the best on earth. Although it is one of the most densely populated urban areas in North America, it retains a freshness, a life, and a peace that few large city centres can claim. For these reasons and more, Vancouver has enjoyed a robust real estate market for decades, and was largely insulated from the recent global financial crisis.
The 2010 Winter Olympic Games was a watershed event for Vancouver. It was a chance for the city to present itself on the world stage, and it shone brilliantly. But for those who have lived here for years, Vancouver’s position as a world-class city has long been secure.
