Every year, 35 to 40 thousand people immigrate to Vancouver, and this shows the fact that the living conditions in the Canadian city of Vancouver are so high that it is considered one of the most attractive destinations for immigrants to Canada. What you will read in this article is an examination of different aspects of life in Vancouver, living conditions in Vancouver and everything related to this city, which is the result of personal experiences and facts of this city that we share with you.
At the very beginning, let's compare the quality of life index in Vancouver with a city like Toronto. In 2022, Vancouver's quality of life index was 177.43, which was higher than Toronto's 161.53.
In the table below, you can see that most of the indicators of life in Vancouver are high. Such as climate index, security, purchasing power and healthcare. Meanwhile, the worst indicator in the city of Vancouver is the housing price-to-income ratio, which shows a very high number, which means that housing costs account for the largest part of people's income.
One of the most striking things you'll notice when you first arrive in Vancouver is the sheer number of people who exercise in Vancouver.
Let me tell you about my personal experience. Some time ago, when I was walking in the Yaletown neighborhood in the center of Vancouver and by the beach, I saw about twenty to thirty thousand people, each of them wearing headlights and luminous bracelets, and they were running. Or in another case, I was looking down the street and saw a marathon of everyone running over a bridge. Imagine it, about 50 to 60 thousand people!
In one word, it should be said that Vancouver is the most sporty city in Canada and this is completely in the culture of the people of this city. According to a survey conducted in Canada, in 2022 Vancouver, along with Calgary, were the top two cities in Canada in terms of health.
It can be said that this city has the healthiest lifestyle in North America. Many people in Vancouver are very fit. Everywhere you look in the city, you will see someone exercising. So that when you see them, you get excited and say to yourself: I should start exercising too.

Vancouver is neither too hot nor too cold. Unlike Eastern Canada, where the weather is very changeable, harsh, and significantly unbearable, Vancouver has an oceanic climate that is mild. Temperature changes in winter and summer are not much.
In Vancouver winters, you rarely experience sub-zero temperatures and summers are not that hot either. Of course, in the last one or two years, for example 2021, this city witnessed a hotter summer, which is also due to climate change.
Let me give an interesting example about the weather in Vancouver. If you give a plane ticket to Vancouver to a normal person in Montreal or Calgary, it's like winning the lottery. The reason for this happiness is Vancouver's warm weather. In fact, southern British Columbia, especially Vancouver, is the only warm area in Canada.
The average temperature of this city varies between 4 and 6 degrees in winter and between 16 and 20 degrees in summer.
