Defining the Next Generation of International Headquarters

HQ Vancouver was established in February 2015 as a joint initiative of the governments of Canada and British Columbia, and the Business Council of British Columbia, to build on Canada’s competitive advantages in key sectors to attract major international firms to establish North American head offices in British Columbia.

The evolving global economy generates new corporate configurations, and international firms are looking for locations that reflect the new realities of trade flows, investment potential and other attributes including business friendliness, talent, connectivity, location and quality of life. Prominent “new” types of headquarters include regional head offices of global firms, executive headquarters, and centres for global product mandates.

Our natural and developed attributes make Vancouver, British Columbia ideally positioned to host the regional North American headquarters of emerging and established companies. Discover these attributes for yourself, by using our What’s Your HQ? web tool. Contact us for additional information and for tailored services. These services include confidential strategic advice to your firm, connecting you with our extensive range of contacts, sector-specific counsel, and assistance with your headquarters location strategy and execution.
