Reason #5: Greenest City
Vancouver is a green city, in almost every respect. It’s what convinced me to move here 5 years ago. I love that Gregor Robertson and Vision Vancouver are working hard to make it even greener.

After months of consultation, Vancouver’s Greenest City action plan was unanimously passed in January. Some pilots have already started, but we should start to see the real results over the next few years, including:

  • City-wide composting
  • Bike sharing
  • Cosmetic pesticide ban
  • Discouraging bottled water
  • Green jobs and greener buildings
  • More community gardens
  • Support for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders

Here’s some more info on Vision Vancouver’s accomplishments and plans. And here’s what Vancouver’s plan looks like from Seattle.
