Vancouver is a great place to start and grow a business.

Join forces with startups, brewpubs and galleries in Vancouver's emerging downtown. Or enjoy a more suburban community surrounding the 192nd tech corridor. Either way, you'll benefit from fantastic natural amenities, miles of bike lanes and riverfront trails, proximity to an international airport and two industrial ports, and the regions most business friendly tax structure.

May was Small Business Month in Vancouver!

Small businesses are core to Vancouver's economy, making up 95 percent of all businesses in the city.
