Vancouver is my hometown and I know for a fact that we punch out of our weight class when it comes to creativity and content creation. You have to be creative just to get by in a city where rent and oat milk lattes can easily drink up your whole paycheck! Vancouver is known around the world for being one of the most multicultural and beautiful cities on the planet and that means our Instagram girls have game.
From wanderers and style influencers to artists and foodies, this list encompasses some of the best Instagram content that's coming out of Canada. You'll be inspired to wear that bold outfit, to book that vacation or just check out the cafe you keep hearing about when you follow these women en masse.
These are the women who knew about HUJI before the celebs started using the app to style their photos. These women know how to find the best and most hidden gems in the city and bring it straight to you. They are so highly original that you can't help but double-tap their posts again and again!
Here are 30 women you should follow who are slaying this whole Instagram thing
