Bustling B.C. Cities That are Cheaper Than Vancouver or Victoria

For many people, British Columbia is the Canadian province of choice to live in, for reasons ranging from the milder weather to access to some of the best education and healthcare facilities in the country. Unfortunately, it’s notoriously expensive to live here. We looked to Numbeo for the data to compare the cost of living in different cities in British Columbia.

In Vancouver, a three-bedroom apartment in the city centre rents for an average of $4,551 per month, while the average price per square metre to buy an apartment in the city centre is $13,483. In the provincial capital, Victoria, things aren’t looking much better: A three-bedroom apartment in the city centre rents for an average of $3,457, and the average price per square metre to buy an apartment in the city centre is $11,028.
