How To Improve Vancouver's Rental Market

While nearly everyone has rented housing at some point in their lives, if you haven't had to search for a new place lately, you will certainly be alarmed at the limited options available, regardless of what your budget may be. Unlike much of the rest of the housing market, there are no foreign investors to accuse of over inflating the cost and demand for rental. In Vancouver there simply isn't enough rental inventory for the people who want to live here.

We Can Transform Vancouver Into A Global Tech Hub

It is time that Metro Vancouver bands together to form a regional strategy that collectively concentrates tech into a defined area that can serve as the catalyst for greater overall success for the industry. Toronto's tech community understands its value in being close to the financial centre of the country, and clustering will similarly allow Vancouver to better develop our brand and competitive advantage for the future.
Bordered by the Coast Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver is the heart of Canada's third-largest metropolitan area and the largest city in British Columbia. In the 1870s, Vancouver was founded as a sawmill settlement called Granville. In 1886, the city was incorporated and renamed Vancouver after Captain George Vancouver, a British naval captain who explored the area in 1792. The city boasts Canada's largest port, a thriving arts scene, the Vancouver Canucks NHL team and the BC Lions of the CFL. It played host to the world for the 2010 Winter Games.
