If you’re looking to move to Canada but unsure where’s best to live, this handy guide to the best regions to live in will help you.

The world’s fair, Expo 86, attracted more than 22 million visitors to Vancouver and is credited for the development of modern-day Yaletown, BC Place, Science World, Canada Place and even Skytrain. In short, Expo 86 transformed Vancouver from a sleepy provincial backwater into a world city. Concord Pacific is still developing the former Expo lands to this day.

News 1130 created a photo gallery, showing the construction of pavilions as well as the Plaza of Nations, BC Place and other now-iconic Vancouver structures to celebrate Expo 86’s upcoming 30th anniversary on May 2. It’s incredible to see how much Vancouver has changed in 30 short years.
