Empty Home Tax

To address the housing crisis in Vancouver, the city has implemented an annual tax on homes that are empty or under-utilized. Every homeowner in Vancouver is required to submit a property status declaration each year to determine status of their property. If it is deemed that the property is under-utilized, the owner will be subject to a 1% tax on the taxable value of the residential property.

Foreign Buyer’s Tax

The Foreign Buyers Tax was implemented to cool hot real estate price growth in the city. In August of 2016, Bill 28, the Miscellaneous Statutes Amendment Act, came into force. The act has four parts: a vacancy tax, foreign buyer’s tax, amendments to the real estate services act, and creation of housing priority initiatives. The core focus of this new act is the additional property transfer tax of 15%, which was expanded to 20% in February 2018, on all residential properties purchased by foreign buyers in the Greater Vancouver Regional District. In August of 2017, the bill came under review and it was said to have done very little to cool down the real estate market in Vancouver.

The Vancouver Real Estate Board

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) was founded in 1919 and has over 11,000 licensed real estate brokers across the Greater Vancouver Area. REBGV covers areas in the Greater Vancouver Area like the Lower Mainland, Bowen Island, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Ladner, Maple Ridge, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Pitt Meadows, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Richmond, Squamish, Sunshine Coast, Tsawwassen, Vancouver East/West, West Vancouver, and Whistler.

Vancouver Airbnb Regulations

As of November 2017, the city of Vancouver has issued new short-term rental rules to regulate the Airbnb market in Metro Vancouver. The new rules will prohibit the use of secondary or “non-principal-residence” homes as Airbnb short-term rentals. The rule was put in effect to help protect Vancouver’s ever-decreasing vacancy rate which currently hovers below 1%. The current rules already ban short-term rentals with terms less than 30 days, with the exception of properly licensed B&Bs. The new regulation will come into effect in April of 2018. For more information visit the City of Vancouver website.

Vancouver Infrastructure

Public Transportation

Vancouver’s main transit system is serviced by TransLink, which operates buses, SkyTrains, SeaBuses, and West Coast Express trains.

Currently there are four SkyTrain lines: Expo, Millennium, Canada, and Evergreen, made up of a fleet of 298 vehicles. The SkyTrain operates from 5:00AM until 1:30AM on weekdays and 5:00AM to 1:00AM on weekends. The remaining areas of the city that are not serviced by SkyTrains are serviced by buses that run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The cost per trip on the TransLink system is $2.85 for adults and $1.80 for concession for zone 1 - prices increase as you travel further into zone 2 or 3. A monthly unlimited pass can be purchased for $93 for zone 1. Cash and Compass passes are accepted across the TransLink network.

The SeaBus is a passenger-only ferry that is unique to Vancouver, which brings passengers from the downtown Waterfront Station to Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver. TransLink currently operates three vessels and it approximately takes 10 minutes to complete the crossing and unloading. It has been part of the TransLink network since 1977 and is a popular tool for residents of North Vancouver commuting into downtown Vancouver for work.

The West Coast Express is an interregional commuter train that brings passengers from cities like Mission, Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Coquitlam, and Port Moody into Waterfront Station in downtown. It has been in operation since 1995 and fares start at $7.35.

Airports

Vancouver is serviced by Vancouver International Airport (YVR) which is located in the city of Richmond, just south of Vancouver. It is a major international air traffic hub for western Canada. It is the 2nd busiest airport in Canada with over 22 million annual total passengers. There are non-stop flights daily to cities in Asia, Europe, Oceania, US, Mexico, and Canada. YVR has received numerous awards and ranked top 10 airports by the North American Airport awards from 2010 through 2017. It is also currently ranked 13th best airport worldwide according to Skytrax. A majority of YVR’s air traffic are from Asian cities, with almost every single destination you can imagine.

Taxi/Uber/Lyft

The biggest taxi company that operates in Vancouver is Yellow Cab. Their yellow cabs can be seen roaming the streets of downtown Vancouver. Taxis are difficult to be hailed on the streets so it is best to book in advance or visit a train station or hotel where they are usually parked waiting for passengers.

Despite being a metropolitan city in Canada, Uber is still banned in Metro Vancouver. As of December 2017, there has been a series of meetings with government officials from BC and Vancouver to lift the ban on ride-hailing companies like Uber. There is a good chance Uber may end up operating in Vancouver by the end of 2018.

Highways/Bridges

Vancouver is the only major city in the world that does not have a highway running through its city centre. The busiest highway in Vancouver is TransCanada Highway #1. Other notable highways include BC Highway 99, which takes you all the way to the US border, 91, 1A, and 7. Most residents of Vancouver rarely use highways within the city limits.

On the other hand, bridges are everywhere in Metro Vancouver. Some important and notable bridges include the Lions Gate, Granville, Cambie, Knight, Arthur Laing, and Second Narrows. For most cities, rush hour traffic is always on highways, but in Vancouver, the most common traffic jams occur on bridge crossings.

Hospitals

There are currently 14 hospitals in the city of Vancouver. Some notable ones include Vancouver General, St. Paul’s, Vancouver Children’s, St. Vincent’s, Mount Saint Joseph, and BC Women’s Hospital. During the Christmas holidays, St. Paul’s Hospital host the Light of Hope display that features over 10km of lights setup on the façade of the hospital.
