About Vancouver

Vancouver is a dynamic, cosmopolitan city nestled in the Pacific Northwest. Home to many scenic wonders, Vancouver offers a relaxed west coast vibe coupled with unparalleled opportunities for water sports, skiing and other winter activities. Here is what the New York Times has to say about Vancouver:

“ You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well … Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling. ” — The New York Times
