Burnaby. Reasonable variety of housing, great parks, pretty good transit, good shopping. You're close to Vancouver if you can't find a job in Burnaby but there's lots there. It's a big place but not crowded.

The closer to Vancouver, the more expensive. Richmond is most expensive, then I would say Burnaby and Coquitlam may get you slightly cheaper. Jobs are everywhere in Vancouver. But location for work depends more on what you do for a living. If your family is independent, sky train gets you around fast to certain areas very well. Burnaby is currently covered, Richmond will be on line before the Olympics, and Coquitlam has been delayed to sometime after that.

Richmond is probably the most expensive of the south shore suburbs. Job availability depends on what industry you are in. Construction is booming everywhere, but other industries are more localized. Don't rule out Vancouver city, there are still some nice neighbourhoods that are relatively affordable.

Honestly I would suggest moving well outside of the Vancouver core - Surrey or Langley - until you get a job that you are comfortable in and pays enough to move in (if you decide that you want to). There are jobs outside of the city of Vancouver - Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford, etc all have economies of their own and if you can get a job in one of these communities, not only will you be paying less in rent/mortgage, but you won't have to deal with commutting over a bridge.If you plan to move close to transit, my advice is to keep a distance between your home and a skytrain station. The skytrain is wonderful, however each station has a circle of crime around it. that's true for major bus loops as well.. even moving two or three blocks away will eliviate the crime that seems to follow our transit system.Schools are variable throughout the region. My suggestion would be to find the area you like and can afford, and check out the local schools. If you are interested in getting your kids into French Immersion, there are plenty of FI schools around and that could be also a consideration. If your children need extra help - English as a Second Language (ESL), learning disabilities, etc., contact the local school districts and find out what sort of services they have and what type of documents you will need to supply.I would also suggest to contact the local police agencies (not all are RCMP) about the crime statistics in different areas. They can give you good information about steering clear of the trouble areas.Good luck in your move!!
