Vancouver a Key Location for Asian Tech Firms

Many East Asian companies, including FunPlus Games, IGG.com and DeNA Studios, are happy to promote their BC workforce.

Many of these firms see the positive impact that is being made by larger American companies located in BC.  “Clearly they’re scanning the globe to find out where they should set up to develop that international creative culture that they’re looking for,” says Ian McKay, CEO of Vancouver Economic Commission.

Sony Pictures Imageworks has recently announced that it would be relocating its headquarters to Vancouver, where a satellite office already exists.  With so many new firms in Vancouver, hundreds of new job positions will be opening for our local workforce. 

Proximity to satellites, the distance to Asia and tech hubs along the west coast as well as ease of immigration and livability play huge factors in making Vancouver appealing to these companies. [1]
