Removals to Vancouver

 Schepens Provide International Removals to Vancouver

There are plenty of reasons to consider moving to Vancouver, but perhaps its location is the most obvious. This stunning seaport offers you the possibility of sunbathing on Kitsilano Beach in the morning and visiting one of the three North Shore ski-resorts in the afternoon. The temperate climate is also a big draw; the city hits an average of 22o℃ in the summer and 6-8o℃ in the winter – which is positively tropical for this part of the world!

Vancouver has a booming economy, making it one of the most attractive locations for expats. The headline growth sectors are software development (especially video games), biotechnology and film. The city has acquired the nickname ‘Hollywood North’ due to its rapidly growing film industry. It’s now the 3rd largest film and TV production centre in North America.

Migration to Vancouver

There are a number of ways to approach your move to Vancouver. Young people can apply for a working holiday permit giving them 12 or 24 months in the country.  People relocating to the city for work, tend to do so on a temporary foreign worker permit. Otherwise there is the permanent residency permit. If you’re planning to move to Canada for good, and you don’t have family there, the recommended route is via an immigration specialist who can help you to find the right option for your specific circumstances.

Healthcare in Vancouver

The Canadian healthcare system is called ‘Medicare’ and it’s highly rated for its quality and efficiency by Canadians. It’s funded partly by the government, and by federal income and insurance premiums. Once you arrive in Vancouver, you can buy temporary medical insurance whilst you’re waiting for your Health Insurance Card application to process.

Housing in Vancouver

The cost of living is high in Vancouver and the housing market is both expensive, and extremely competitive. Downtown rentals are the most expensive, and they’re hard to come by. Alternatives include Yaletown, which is an up-and coming neighbourhood, Gastown which is one of the most historic residential areas, and Coal Harbour which is an affluent area populated mostly by retirees and older professionals.
