Foo Asian Street Food restaurant, Victoria, BC, CanadaBritish Columbia’s cap­i­tal city of Victoria used to be dubbed a des­ti­na­tion for the “new­ly wed and near­ly dead.” Yes, it was — and still is — pop­u­lar among both new­ly­weds and retirees, but with a grow­ing high-tech indus­try, a pas­sion­ate com­mu­ni­ty of local food advo­cates, and a now-vibrant cul­tur­al scene, Victoria is increas­ing­ly cool.

And nowhere is the city cool­er-look­ing than in this web­site: The Imagination Economy — high­light­ing all the rea­sons why cool folks should live and work in Victoria. Check it out!
