Summary: Expats, digital nomads and retirees talk about what it is really like living in Vancouver, Canada. They offer advice about meeting people, cost of living, finding a home and more.

What do I need to know before moving to Vancouver?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Vancouver, they said:

"Where you move to will depend on your work. Visit first and decide which localities you like that might offer the type of employment you are engaged in. Then go job hunting or start your business. If the latter, make sure there is enough of a market to provide your business with critical mass. Too many people move to the gulf islands, stay a year then move out because they find they can't earn a living," said another expat in Vancouver.
