Our presence in Canada is growing fast! Today, our platform is live in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada’s water and mountain bound west-coast city! It’s a vibrant place full of art, culture, and fun things to do, and we’re excited for it to be the second stop on our international expansion into Canada.
Vancouver is the most populous city in the British Columbia province, and the third largest city in terms of area in Canada. It has consistently been named one of the top five cities in the world for livability and quality of life, so if the idea of skiing, hiking, and lying on the beach all in the same day appeals to you, Vancouver might be your scene.
