About Vancouver

Vancouver is a great place to consider if you’re planning on moving to Canada. A Coastal seaport situated in British Columbia, the city is home to over 630,000 inhabitants, and is one of the most ethically and linguistically diverse cities within Canada. The city makes a great home for all who live there, offering a remarkably high quality of life, and is also popular with tourists wanting to encounter Vancouver’s local culture and history.



When thinking about your move to Canada, finding the right place to live is key to settling into your new home country. The suburbs of Vancouver vary in style, atmosphere and, of course, price range. Here are just a few of our favourites.

Arburtus Ridge offers a good selection of house styles and sizes, so you’re likely to find something to satisfy your requirements. It is predominantly a residential area lying in Vancouver’s west side. The neighbourhood has no hotels, meaning it is not a hotspot for tourists. Rather, it is filled with homes built on large plots, dotted along tree-lined streets.

Kitsilano is another mainly residential area, although there is a little more on offer on the commercial side of things here, with two commercial areas providing shops, restaurants and organic food markets. Kitsilano is also home to the Burrard Bridge, Kitsilano beach and the Museum of Vancouver/H.R. MacMillan Space Centre.

Kerrisdale offers a selection of different housing types, from old bungalows to new houses and apartment blocks. The neighbourhood had a shopping district, and its residents range from students to high-end professionals.


Getting Around in Vancouver

Moving to Canada is one thing, but making sure you can get around once you’re there is critically important too. Thankfully, Vancouver boasts a convenient and accessible public transport system named Translink, which consists of the SkyTrain, SeaBus and West Coast Express commuter train service, as well as a frequent bus service. The service runs between 5am and 1am, with a reduced service running throughout the night. The city is divided into 3 fare zones for the SkyTrain and SeaBus, but all bus journeys operate on a one-zone fare.


Things to do in Vancouver

Vancouver has something for everyone by way of things to do. If you enjoy the outdoors, you can enjoy some great walks on Grouse Mountain or in Stanley Park. In the winter there are ski regions within easy reach of the city, and in the summer you have plenty of beaches to choose from. The city itself offers plenty of shopping opportunities and restaurants to dine in, so you’ll never be short of things to do.


Interesting Facts

Testament to the high quality of life it is renowned for, Vancouver has been ranked the 10th cleanest city in the world.

The city is home to the 4th largest cruise ship terminal in the world.

At a whopping 1001 acres, Vancouver’s Stanley Park is 10% larger than New York City’s famous Central Park.

The packers were careful, quick and courteous. I highly recommend this company and would definitely use them again! Efficient, polite, punctual: could not ask for more.

Hertfordshire, UK to Virginia, USA - March 2023

From start with Michelle to finish with Gill the level of service was excellent. John Mason and its international partners handled my move from Devon to Australia seemingly effortlessly. I couldn't ask for better.
