From A-to-Z-list Vancouver is home to a full spectrum of stars.

And no matter how big a name they are, there’s no denying that we all get a little excited when we hear that they’ve been spotted around town.

But the truth is that whether they’re A-list actors or environmental activists; we love our local celebs because they love Vancouver, or at least that’s what we tell ourselves while we creep on their Instagram accounts!


Carly Rae Jepsen

Time switch- NYC tmr bb 👋🏻LA

A post shared by Carly Rae Jepsen (@carlyraejepsen) on


Just your average pop music artist with a husband and kid living in Vancouver. Carly’s feed provides a behind-the-scenes look at her everyday life from her son’s meltdowns to red carpet events.

Had the absolute pleasure of meeting this wild soul the other night! Excited for her in ways I can’t explain! @maggierogers great show! Go see her live and dance like we did. 💖🎶

Michael Buble

My bucket list is complete. I love you Chewy ❤️ #Disneyland #makingwookie #la

Local heartthrob and A-game selfie-king. A scroll through Michael’s feed will quickly show you how much of a family man this guy is. If you couldn’t figure out why he writes so many love songs you’ll see from his pics; his wife’s an absolute babe.

Why do I love my home town so much ? Here’s a few reasons ! #home #vancouver #brothers

Ryan Reynolds

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. You gave birth to me an excruciating 468 weeks late. I was 9. We were both so happy to be free.

A post shared by Ryan Reynolds (@vancityreynolds) on


Ryan’s feed is a mashup of everything; Deadpool pics, shots of him and his wife, family photos, memes, you name it it’s there. With over 14 million followers, he maintains a hilarious feed.

How’s this for meta? The women and men of Fox Marketing. Their work on #Deadpool changed the game.

Julian DeSchutter

“Mom’s gonna be pissed when she sees this…” 😂✌🏻 ⠀⠀ My boy @gswenno, capturing me in the midst of some action down at @grandcanyonnps.⠀ ⠀⠀ #SpiritQuest⠀ #ChasingSunrise

A post shared by Julian DeSchutter (@deshoots) on


Best known as the co-founder for Chasing Sunrise, Julian has become an outdoor leader in Vancity. Known to anyone who’s ever participated in a Chasing Sunrise event (including a whopping 1,000 Vancouverites on Canada Day alone). He’s slid down mountains on floaties, jumped into icy lakes in a wetsuit and encouraged over 40,000 people to connect with the outdoors.

My only hope is that when you get the chance to send it – to get after what you want – you find a way overcome the wave of BS society has sold us all and take the leap. ⠀ Future you will thank you for it. ⠀ Moment: one of the raddest humans ever (one and only @wendy.shep) capturing me in a pure moment of getting just what I want. Sending it floatie-styles over the Vancouver skyline. ⠀ #PeterPanSyndrome #RealTalk #ChasingSunrise

Elysia Rotaru

It was but yesterday I thought myself a fragment quivering without rhythm in the sphere of life. Now I know that I am the sphere, and all life in rhythmic fragments moves within me. ~Kahlil Gibran, Sand and Foam

Perhaps best known for her role as Taiana Venediktov on Arrow, lifelong Vancouverite Elysa Rotaru is something of a staple on the small screen with appearances in all manner of hit shows. She’s also got a pretty strong Instagram game right now as her 75k followers will testify!
