Vancouver - Post Report Question and Answers

What types of jobs do most expatriate spouses/partners have? Locally based or telecommuting? Full-time or part-time? Can you comment on local salary scales?

I have heard it is fairly easy to work on the local market here. Minimum wage is just under $11 right now. - May 2017

Yes. - Aug 2015

I don't think so, at least for professionals, but it probably depends. Check with FLO or CLO. There wasn't anything to speak of for EFMs at the Consulate that I was aware of. - Jun 2014

Only if you have a working visa, in which case it's no holds barred. - Mar 2012

All you need is a work permit to work but good jobs may not be as easy to get as you may think. The skilled job market is a bit tight, even by U.S. standards. - Oct 2008
