  • Sony Pictures Imageworks’ decision to relocate from California was certainly influenced by Vancouver’s burgeoning reputation as a hub for video gaming and TV animation. Operating in the same time zone as LA streamlines production efficiencies – allowing artists, supervisors and production staff to work more seamlessly on projects.

    Laurie Schultz CEO, ACL
  • We are headquartered in Vancouver because we began here and are growing up here, there’s an innovative tech culture— we’re part of an amazing cast of Vancouver companies disrupting all sorts of sectors—and there’s a deep and diverse talent pool here.

  • When deciding where to base Bench, the two questions we asked ourselves were: 1) Where do we want to live for the next ten years? and 2) Where is the talent that will drive our growth? In answering those questions, Vancouver was the clear choice.
