Why take an IB workshop in Vancouver?

Vancouver is regularly ranked as one of the world’s most livable cities.  Cosmopolitan and multi-cultural, Vancouver is blessed by nature flanked by mountains and sea. Our IB professional development workshops are hosted in a central downtown location near Stanley Park, English Bay, shops, restaurants and beaches, without the need for a car.  The cost of a workshop in Canada is also highly competitive, and often cheaper than other countries, based on average foreign exchange rates.
