The coastal seaport is located in the southwest corner of Canada’s British Columbian province. Downtown Vancouver is situated on a peninsula flanked by English Bay to one side and Burrard Inlet to the other. Its 2.4 million inhabitants (within the greater metropolitan area) have access to an exciting city and the wide expanses of the wild Pacific Northwest. Vancouver lies near excellent skiing in the Canadian Rockies and Whistler Resort, and the great outdoors of Vancouver Island. In fact, this is part of what led Vancouver to be chosen as the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Vancouver was first settled by bands of Indians who crossed the Bering Land Bridge. Thousands of years later, the Spanish laid claim to the west coast of North America, including the land where Vancouver is now. The city itself grew out of a shantytown adjacent to a logging sawmill called Gastown in 1867. It is said the lumber from Gastown was shipped to China and used to construct Beijing’s Imperial Palace. From this sawmill, the town of Granville arose, and was renamed Vancouver in 1886 after an English captain who came upon the area after the Spanish. Soon after, the transcontinental railroad reached Vancouver, making it an important seaport for traffic to Asia. Vancouver is now the biggest port in Canada.

Today, Vancouver is home to a vast multicultural population making it is an accessible, welcoming place for international students from all around the world. It offers top entertainment, excellent shopping, gourmet restaurants, and exciting sporting events. A combination of cultures – Indian, Italian, First Nations tribes, Chinese, and Japanese – have influenced Vancouver’s development, creating a unique diversity throughout the metropolis.
