Vancouver is one of the largest free public WiFi providers in North America. You can access free public WiFi across Vancouver at:

  • Vancouver Public Library sites
  • City administration buildings
  • #VanWiFi locations 

Free public WiFi is a core component of our Digital Strategy, aimed at enhancing your experience within the city through online, mobile, and social media channels. 

Connecting you to mobile applications like VanConnect, which gives you access to City Hall services on the go, is an example of how our city is digitally transforming into a leading smart city.
