Is Vancouver’s ad market big enough for a career?


I think I would like living in Vancouver a lot more than Toronto, but the advertising market is much bigger in toronto. I guess what I’m asking is, is vancouver’s ad market big enough for someone that’s seeking to have a successful career w/ a couple of large firms?

intro Is Vancouvers ad market big enough for a career?You heard it here first: size doesn’t matter. Two of the top agencies in Canada are in Vancouver; PJDDB is large (ish) and Rethink is small(ish). Both are fantastic. We’d observe that the people working there are, rightly, only concerned with the size of the opportunity. And how close they are to a snowboarding hill. There aren’t a huge number of agencies in Vancouver, but they make it count. Don’t ask yourself whether there are enough big agencies there. Ask if, in a market as competitive as Vancouver must be, is your work up to their standards?
