  2. About Vancouver

    Vancouver

    Vancouver (pronounced: ) is a city located in southwestern British Columbia, Canada. It is named after Captain George Vancouver, an English explorer. Vancouver has a population of 587,891, Greater Vancouver is the largest metropolitan area in western Canada and the third largest in the country. It is also the largest city in the Pacific Northwest and is the second-largest metropolitan area (second to Seattle). Vancouver is ethnically diverse, with more than half of its residents having a first language other than English. The city is growing rapidly, and the GVRD population is projected to reach 2.6 million by 2020.

    Vancouver is located between the Strait of Georgia and the Coast Mountains. Its economy has traditionally relied on British Columbia's resource sectors: forestry, mining, fishing and agriculture. It was first settled in the 1860s as a result of immigration caused by the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush, particularly from the United States, although many immigrants did not remain after the rush. The city developed rapidly from a small lumber mill town into a metropolitan centre following the arrival of the transcontinental railway in 1887. The Port of Vancouver became internationally significant after the completion of the Panama Canal, which reduced freight rates in the 1920s and made it viable to ship export-bound prairie grain west through Vancouver. It has since become the busiest seaport in Canada, and exports more cargo than any other port in North America. The economy of Vancouver has diversified over time, however. Vancouver has a growing tourism industry, for example, and has become the third-largest film production centre in North America, after Los Angeles and New York City, earning it the nickname Hollywood North. More recently, Vancouver has had an expansion in high-tech industries, most notably video game development.

    Vancouver is consistently ranked one of the three most livable cities in the world. In 2007, it was ranked the 89th most expensive city in which to live among 143 major cities in the world, and the second most expensive in Canada after Toronto. Vancouver tied with Vienna as having the third highest quality of living in the world, after Zürich and Geneva.

    The 2010 Winter Olympics will be held in Vancouver and nearby Whistler."
