    When moving to a huge city such as Vancouver, InterNations made it easy for me to find fellow expats and the network that I needed.

InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Vancouver

Hello to all Americans in Vancouver! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Vancouver? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Vancouver which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Vancouver is a delight, not only for nature lovers. The “Big Smoke” is a multicultural city known for its great quality of life, the multicultural atmosphere, the local television and film production industry which is one of the biggest in North America, and much more! With the comprehensive network of bus and trolleybus routs, as well as the famous SkyTrain metro system, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the nearby communities of Vancouver’s metro area, which are an easy commute away from Vancouver’s center.

Although Vancouver has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Vancouver, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
