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!
