About British Columbia

British Columbia is Canada's westernmost province and is set between the Pacific Ocean in the west and the magnificent Rocky Mountains in the east.
Blessed with breathtaking landscapes, BC is home to a geographical diversity that lends itself to a vast array of activities and adventures. There are mountains to climb, rivers to run, beaches to comb, forests to hike, parks to stroll and warm summer lakes to laze about on.
The province generally enjoys a temperate climate but where there are mountains, there is snow. Renowned for the steep and the deep of its world-class ski terrain, BC bustled with energy during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympics Winter Games.
Always a gold medal destination for savvy travellers, BC offers not just outdoor adventure but cosmopolitan culture, world class exhibitions, uptown shopping and fabulous dining. From sophisticated cities to breathtaking scenery, there is something for everyone in BC.


Metro Vancouver

Metro Vancouver is the brand name of the board of the inter-municipal administrative body known as the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD), a regional district in British Columbia, Canada. "Greater Vancouver Regional District" is the official name of the regional district and remains in common use.
The Greater Vancouver Regional District was incorporated on June 29th, 1967. Greater Vancouver as a region and name emerged when the newly born City of Vancouver expanded to become larger than the older New Westminster.
The Greater Vancouver Regional District established in 1967, was following by the creation of Greater Vancouver Sewerage and Drainage District (GVSDD) in 1914 and Greater Vancouver Water District (GVWD) in 1926. In 2007, the GVRD board unanimously supported a proposal to the provincial government to change its official name to Metro Vancouver. While the new name took effect in September 2007, the Province declined to amend the Greater Vancouver Regional District's letters patent to change the name to "Metro Vancouver". The name of the physical area governed by the organization remains the Greater Vancouver Regional District.
