Vancouver

History:

"The region had long been inhabited by several Native American (First Nations) peoples when a trading post, Fort Langley, was set up by the Hudson’s Bay Company in 1827 near the mouth of the Fraser River. Few people of European descent lived in the area until the late 1850s, when the town of New Westminster (now a suburb of Vancouver) was established near the site of the original fort."

Gain More Background About the Province

History:

"Since the retreat of the great glaciers about 10,000 years ago, Aboriginal populations have inhabited the BC landscape. BC's first people may have journeyed to the region from Asia via a land bridge across the Bering Sea. As the ice receded, forests advanced and fluctuating sea levels exposed the temporary land passage linking Asia to the New World."

Laws

Facts and Trivia:

"The eco-activist group Greenpeace was formed in Vancouver in 1971."

 

Start Preparing for Your Trip

Things to Pack:

"Passport, visas, work & study permits and other documents are the last thing you want to forget. I would suggest taking a photocopy of all the documents and putting them in another bag, so you have a copy of them in case you lose the originals."

Victoria

History:

"The inner harbour is flanked by the impressive provincial legislative buildings completed in 1898 and the Empress Hotel (1908). "

Kamloops

History:

"In the late 1850s gold seekers arrived and ranching and farming began; Kamloops became a general depot for the region. The completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CP Rail) in 1885 encouraged further development, and by 1893 Kamloops had a population of 1000. Since the late 1950s, it has grown rapidly as a regional centre."
