Cardiome's headquarters are based in Vancouver, BC. Vancouver, located on Canada's West Coast, is one of the most beautiful cities in North America. Surrounded by water, parks and the coastal mountains, the city provides a stunning natural environment perfect for the pursuit of almost any recreational activity.
Vancouver recently showed off its natural beauty to the world by hosting the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. It was recognized as the #1 'most livable city in the world' in 2011, and for good reason. There aren't many other cities where you can have a round of golf in the morning, go sailing in the afternoon, then hit the slopes for night skiing - if you're ambitious.
A strategic location on the Pacific Rim and the US-Canadian border has helped Vancouver take a leading position in Canadian business and trade. Vancouver has emerged as one of the top biotechnology hubs in the country, with exciting initiatives stemming from the University of British Columbia and elsewhere.
