The Incognito Training Center is located in our office situated in Vancouver’s Gastown, home of the world’s only steam powered clock. The town was founded in 1867 when a saloon keeper named John ‘Gassy Eye’ Deighton opened his doors to the public. Over the years, Gastown expanded but retained its historic charm with its cobbled streets and turn-of-the-century buildings. The area was named a heritage zone in 1971, and was recently declared a National Historic Site by the Government of Canada.
