Safety in Vancouver

【Vancouver 治安】





As you might already know, Canada is always ranked as one of “the best countries to live in” and known as a safe country. There are warm-hearted and friendly people, always “things” to do and beautiful nature. However, there are some areas where I cannot recommend you to go.


①Chinatown (Hastings St.)


お昼の時間帯は観光客で賑わっており問題ありませんが、夜に歩くのは避けるべき場所です。また、チャイナタウンの北の方のHastings Stは特に、ホームレスの方が集まっているので要注意です。


There are lots of tourists when the sun is still out, so you do not have to worry but you should avoid walking around there at night especially Hastings St. There are so many homeless and alcohol/drug addicted people.




②Granville Street


Nightclubs and adult stores are located in this area, and there are also some homeless people, and I often see drunk people around there. It is not as dangerous as Hastings st, but I would not recommend to walk alone there at night.




Vancouver is such a safe city, but you should be aware of those areas to protect yourselfJ

What should you do when you’ve lost your passport?

What should you do when you’ve lost your passport?
Have you ever lost your passport before?
Actually, I lost my passport a month ago.
Let me share my advice and knowledge in this type of situation.
If you’ve lost your passport, don’t panic!
First take a deep breath then:
1. Go to a police office station
In order to get new passport you need to get a claim form from the police.
You are going to tell them where and what time you lost your passport.
It seems like it’s difficult but it’s very simple and you don’t need to be nervous.
2. Go to your country’s consulate office
Here is the list of what you need to bring to the consulate
1) Claim form from police
2) Birth certificate
3) Passport photo of you (35MM 45MM) You can get passport photos done at London Drugs!
It took about 2 weeks for me to get a new passport!
You should always keep your passport somewhere safe; you shouldn’t carry it around with you everyday.
I would recommend to bring your BCID instead! BCID stands for British Columbia Identification. It is a government issued ID card that is recognized everywhere in North America.
Next time I am going to tell you how to get a BCID.
