  • Canada Place

    Canada Place, A national landmark in the heart of Vancouver’s waterfront

    Canada Place is probably one of Vancouver’s most important and easily recognizable spots. It has been often compared to the Sydney Opera house and even though there is no denying the similarities between both, Canada place is a far more modest structure.
