About Vancouver

Vancouver Vancouver is the largest city in Western Canada, located at the south- western corner of the province of British Columbia. Situated between the north-shore and coastal mountains and the edge of the Pacific ocean, Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in North America, and was recently ranked as "the world's most desirable place to live" in a survey of 127 cities performed by the Intelligence Unit of the magazine The Economist. It is also the hosting city of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The vibrant downtown core offers all the amenities of an international destination - from hundreds of restaurants and clubs through countless parks and recreation facilities to world-class sporting and entertainment events (including the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and the Canucks - the city's major league hockey team). Vancouver's natural surroundings offer limitless opportunities for outdoor pursuits, such as hiking and mountain biking in the Spring and Summer, and skiing at nearby Whistler-Blackcomb resort in Winter. We invite you to explore Vancouver and Beautiful British Columbia at the following web sites:
