Territory of Vancouver

Vancouver is a coastal city located in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Canada. Known as one of the top cities for education in the world, Vancouver is the perfect setting for your English program. The city is the most populous in Western Canada and third-largest in the country with just over 2 million people in its metropolitan area. Over the last 30 years, immigration has dramatically increased, making the city more culturally diverse.

Vancouver Climate

Unlike many parts of Canada, there is very little snow in the city of Vancouver. However, we do get snow up in our local mountains. During winter we usually have mild or rainy weather. Summer months are drier and sunnier with moderate temperatures. The daily maximum averages 22 °C in July and August, with highs reaching 30 °C.

Vancouver rarely has temperatures below freezing, but if you are joining our program in the winter, come prepared for cooler temperatures. On average, we only have 4.5 days a year with temperatures staying below freezing. If you are joining us in the summer, bring your bathing suit and sandals!

Higher Education

There are five public universities in the Greater Vancouver area, the largest being the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Simon Fraser University (SFU). In 2006, UBC was ranked 27th best university in the world by Newsweek magazine, and SFU ranked as the best comprehensive university in Canada by Maclean's University Rankings in 2009. The other public universities are Capilano University, the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

Quality of Life

Vancouver has been ranked one of the most livable cities in the world for more than a decade. Vancouver regularly ranks in the world's top 5 cities for quality of living. Forbes also ranked Vancouver as the 1oth cleanest city in the world.

Recreation & Sports

The warmer climate of the city and close proximity to ocean, mountains, rivers and lakes make the area a popular destination for outdoor recreation. The city has several large beaches, many adjacent to one another. Beaches include Second and Third Beaches in Stanley Park, English Bay (First Beach), Sunset Beach, Kitsilano Beach and Jericho Beach. The coastline provides for many types of water sport, and the city is a popular destination for boating enthusiasts.

Within a 20-to-30-minute drive from downtown Vancouver are the North Shore Mountains, with three ski areas: Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain, and Mount Seymour. Mountain bikers have also created world-renowned trails across the North Shore.

Vancouver at a glance...

Vancouver has many sightseeing opportunities, restaurants, nightlife options and great forms of accommodation for international students who intend to live there an average from 2 weeks to a year. Vancouver is also the largest metropolitan area in Western Canada and the third largest in all of the country, with a population of 2.6 million. Located at the southwestern corner of the coastal province of British Columbia, it is well known for its majestic natural beauty, as it is nestled between the Coast Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Vancouver is one of those rare places where you could theoretically ski in the mountains, windsurf in the ocean, and play a round of golf all in the same day. Surrounded by water on three sides and crowned by the North Shore mountains, Vancouver is a great destination in itself, as well a great starting point for discovering the area's many outdoor activities. Vancouver is broadly split into three: the Westside, the Eastside (or East Van) and city centre. This split is simply geography: everything west of Ontario St. is the Westside, everything east is East Vancouver and everything north of False Creek is the city center. Each of these areas has their own attractions and neighborhoods which you should explore.
