Global China and the Vancouver Housing Market
David Ley is a Professor of urban and social geography at UBC in Vancouver, where he has been based since leaving graduate school in the 1970s. His research has studied housing and neighbourhood issues in Canadian cities in a global context. Following earlier publications on gentrification, a recent project examined immigration and return migration by wealthy ethnic Chinese families between East Asia and Canada. His most recent book, Millionaire Migrants tells the story of this migration and its impacts. His current book project is Housing Bubbles in Gateway Cities, examining high housing costs with price volatility, in the gateway cities of Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Vancouver and London. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and Fellow Emeritus of the Trudeau Foundation.
