Vancouver in 2000 vs. 2015: An infographic

DH Vancouver Staff Jan 12, 2015 9:16 am

A lot has changed in Vancouver in the last 15 years. Even though the year 2000 seems like just a little while ago, it’s quite strange to think that kids born that year are now in high school.

That’s not the only thing that has developed over the years. Since 2000, Vancouver has seen a radical shift across the board. Prices for things such as a seat at a Canucks game, a movie ticket, a litre of gas, a house, university tuition and a bus ride have all gone up.

Vancouver’s professional sports landscape has greatly shifted, as well as the type of phone we’re carrying around the movies we’re seeing. Huge transportation developments, from new bridges to extended Translink infrastructure, has made it easier for Vancouverites to get around. And the cars we’re getting around in have changed a lot as well.

Overall, Vancouver’s gotten much bigger in the last 15 years – more people, taller buildings, and more tourists.

Take a look at this infographic to see just how much we’ve changed:
