Spectacular and endlessly varied, Vancouver combines ocean, rainforest and mountains in a welcome climate that attracts residents and visitors alike. One of the world's most livable cities and a leading tourism destination, Vancouver is set amid the stunning natural beauty of snow-dusted peaks rising above ocean inlets and a broad river delta.
This city of one million people is Canada's western gateway to Eurasia, New Zealand and Australia, and to the United States. It is also British Columbia's major education and service industry centre.
Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts is located at the ocean's edge, on the south shore of False Creek, near the heart of Downtown Vancouver. We're at the gateway to Granville Island, an energetic conclave of businesses, restaurants, a visual arts school, a public market, galleries and theatres all of which attracts an estimated 250,000 visitors each month.
