Businesses featured on VancityAsks.com:
VancityAsks.com does not request businesses procure their customers and fans to “vote” for them in order to be featured as the best-of Vancouver. In my humble opinion, such concept is in the interest of the hosting publication as they wish to enlarge their audience and awareness.
It may not be the most accurate depiction of the best-of Vancouver because whoever has inclined their customers to vote for them the most or whoever has the biggest brand/business typically comes up on top. How about those undiscovered gems and hole-in-the wall which Vancouver is peppered with?
At VancityAsks.com, we truly want to find the best-of Vancouver. We root for the mom and pops local shops and big businesses; we care not so long as they excel in what they do. We love our city.

Are your list bias?
As the lists are compiled by humans (and community feedback), there may be some measure of influence.
