Understanding local industries Every city has its primary industries, and Vancouver is no different. Tourism, film production, software development, forest services and biotechnology are all fields with significant economic ties to the city. It can pay to focus on industries that are prosperous in Vancouver because related firms are more likely to be hiring. There is no sure fire way to find a job in Vancouver, but hard work and perseverance are always rewarded. That is what it takes to find work virtually anywhere. It may be harder to find work in Vancouver than in other Canadian cities, but it is worth pursuing, as the reward is being able to live in one of the most dynamic and desirable places in North America.
