Vancouver: Should I Stay or Should I Go?
June 14, 2016
From the mountains and the beaches, to the walkable neighbourhoods and abundant year-round leisure activities, it’s not surprising that Vancouver regularly tops “most liveable city” lists. However, this global attention has contributed to a red-hot housing market that’s left many Vancouverites questioning whether their futures might look brighter elsewhere. Join us as we bring together UBC alumni who will share their personal journeys as well as UBC experts who will offer strategies for anyone who wants to find a way to stay in this city.
