For the most part, Vancouver residents are accustomed to paying a little more – whether it's about hiring or expelling their car.
So it will not be a surprise for many that the city has another dubious title when it comes to expensive life: it is also the home of the most expensive "average" date.
This is according to the dating site "Elite Singles", which was crushing the numbers earlier this month and ranking the big cities of Canada for romantic slopes.
The site ranks the cities by drawing up its own idea of a "typical" night encounter.
The night includes middle-class dinner for two, a common bottle of wine, two movie tickets and one [eight-kilometre] taxi ride home. "
According to these standards, the average night time across the country will cost a Canadian pair of $ 125.
In Vancouver the price of the night comes with a huge $ 150.

Not far behind Vancouver is Toronto, Canada's largest city, the average overnight stay is about $ 142, according to the site.
At the other end of the spectrum, Winnipeg won as Canada's cheap capital, where the price for one night for two came at 116 dollars.
However, although $ 150 may seem like a heavy tax on the overnight portfolio, Vancouver still falls far below some other world cities.
The most expensive date of Elite Singles in the world is in Oslo, Norway – which came with a huge $ 221.
The chance for love will cost you $ 209 in London and $ 187 in New York – the most expensive city of the United States that has so far been.
And if you are looking for the cheapest city in the world for one night, a couple can take the same bottle of wine, dinner, movie and cabin trip to Istanbul for just $ 40.
