Vancouver - Post Report Question and Answers

Are there problems with ethnic, race/racial minorities or religious prejudices? Gender equality?

No problems. - May 2017

No. - Aug 2015

Not sure. There was a bit of resentment brewing among old vs. new Chinese, I heard, and Vancouver has more than rolled out a welcome mat for anyone who can afford to come and park their money (if not themselves) there, making real estate and daily existence less affordable for mere mortals, but I was impressed by how calm and accommodating Vancouverites seemed to be. I wonder if it is sustainable. - Jun 2014

All minorities have their place and their voice here. - Mar 2012

Vancouver is extremely diverse and people seem to get along better than in American cities. There appears to be very little racial friction but the ethnic groups tend to stick to themselves. Iranians in North Vancouver, Chinese in Richmond, and Punjabis in Surrey. - Oct 2008
