About Vancouver

Located on Canada’s west coast, Vancouver is regularly ranked among the top cities in the world in which to live.

Welcome to Vancouver

Clean and safe, Vancouver is a multicultural, forward-thinking urban environment of 600,000 people (more than 2.5 million live in the Vancouver area). Host to the 2010 Winter Olympics, it’s a special place where urban dwellers can walk, shop and get their fill of culture. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy exceptional skiing, kayaking on the Pacific Ocean or hiking in old growth forests.

Vancouver has a temperate climate with very little snow in winter (except in the mountains) and warm but rarely hot summers. English is the official language, but 40 percent of Vancouverites speak another language in addition to English, making it a rich global mix.

Public transportation, community centres, walkable neighbourhoods, are all part of what makes Vancouver so livable.

All of Providence’s facilities are located in Vancouver proper. St. Paul’s Hospital is the only hospital located in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
