Discover the Best of Your City

Gem City Guide Vancouver has returning for its fifth year, with the current edition now distributing in Vancouver. This innovative concept in advertising—the first to appear in Canada—combines deep local insight with an international flavour. It is not a catalogue, and not a booklet—it is a beautiful display book that guides VIP clientele to the best spots in the city.

Gem City Guide presents the best of Vancouver to the cityʼs most influential residents and visitors. The idea for Gem City Guide was first born in Europe—and is now thriving in 10 cities across France, Belgium, and the U.K.

Each issue profiles Vancouverʼs essential shops, restaurants, and artisans in four categories.

Featured in our 2019–2020 issue are:
