Vancouver is a city of beauty, hospitality, and globally recognized facilities. On your downtime, you will be able to explore the endless corners of the city and its surroundings without ever worrying about getting bored with the options at hand. In terms of livability, lifestyle, costs, and inclusiveness, Vancouver offers everything a person could possibly want when studying or living abroad. If you haven’t already done so, and are considering a full-time academic or language program abroad to learn English then take a closer look at what Vancouver has to offer.
Residents of Vancouver are proud of their cultural heritage and the fact that we have a rainbow of nations at our fingertips. Vibrant festivals such as the Sikh Vaisakhi Parade, the Persian celebration of Nowruz, Italian Day on The Drive, The German Christmas Market located in the Heart of Downtown Vancouver, and the annual Chinese New Year festivities bless the city with food, music, people and performances from around the globe. We are fortunate in this city to live amongst so many different cultures. The only requirement we demand of those coming to the city is an open heart towards fellow residents regardless of race, colour, ethnicity, religion, political leaning, sex, or gender.
Festivals take place year-round and are full of activity and life. If you wish to call the Pacific North West your new home, you had better be prepared for events such as the Celebration of Light, The world famous Pride Parade, the Santa Clause Parade at Christmas, the Pemberton Music Festival, and the Vancouver Folk Fest. One thing we can guarantee is that you will never be bored while you are on the west coast.
