Attract and Keep Top Talent

British Columbia is a magnet for skilled and creative people. The province offers a quality of life unmatched anywhere in North America, and by few places in the world. Our companies view this as a key competitive advantage in recruiting and retaining top talent.

Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the most liveable cities in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), an affiliate of the U.K.-based Economist magazine. The EIU ranks 140 cities on stability, health care, culture, environment, education and infrastructure.
