How to Buy in Vancouver

Today 09:58 GMT

It is impossible to think about buying in Vancouver as a foreigner without considering the now- infamous tax on foreign buyers and speculators introduced in 2016 to make housing in the region more affordable and cool down an extremely hot market.

Saturday 21:52 GMT

The four major markets are the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.49% S&P 500 Index SPX, +0.19% Nasdaq 100 Index NDX, -0.28% and Russell 2000 Index RUT, -0.20%
