Vancouver is one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities in Canada. It is consistently named as one of the top five worldwide cities for livability and quality of life.

Port Metro Vancouver is the fourth-largest port by tonnage in the Americas, the busiest and largest in Canada, and the most diversified port in North America. While forestry remains its largest industry, Vancouver is well known as an urban centre surrounded by nature, making tourism its second-largest industry.
