Virtual, Mixed, and Augmented Reality

Vancouver’s fast emerging Virtual Reality sector benefits from a longstanding legacy in the film, video game & tech industries

All the necessary components are in place for Vancouver’s VR sector to become one of the world’s best VR clusters.

Vancouver has built the third largest Film & TV production centre in North America and the top VFX & Animation cluster globally – all while providing an example of how important it is to leverage the convergence of film, visual effects, animation, games, and technology. The famously collaborative nature of Vancouver’s film & media industries makes for easy idea exchanges between content creators and platform developers. These pioneering industries are now poised to develop a new business playbook as this modern city continues its metamorphosis into a hub for virtual, augmented and mixed reality.
