Vancouver. One of Canada’s largest Pacific Rim seaport towns, Vancouver boasts a population of roughly 2.4 million and a GDP of $9.7 billion. Not only does the port itself conduct $172 billion annually in international exporting, but mining industries, technology development, and the largest collection of film production studios north of Hollywood draw people from all parts of the world. Currently, a staggering 52% of Vancouverites speak English as their second language. Nearly 30% of the population is of Chinese heritage, and Mandarin and Cantonese are common languages to hear both in public and at home. There is also a particularly large German community, as well as plenty of Japanese, Korean, and Punjabi immigrants living in the city.
Vancouver is an energetic and diverse city with limitless opportunity – especially for those who are well-equipped with a second (or third! or fourth!) language.
