British Columbia

map of british columbia

British Columbia is Canada's westernmost province.

BC shares a common border with 4 US states, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Alaska. And in addition the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Yukon and The Northwest Territories. BC covers a total area of about 365 thousand square miles or about 925 thousand square kilometres. With a population estimated in 2008 at just over 4.3 million people you should find someone in BC every 12 square miles.

You might find it curious to learn that according to wikipedia when you take out people who identify themselves as English or Canadian there are 748,905 Scottish people living in British Columbia.
So you may be wondering where the typical Vancouver resident goes when they want to get out of town for the weekend? We're glad you asked because this where we turn over some of the heavy lifting to our link partners.

When I need to get out of town I usually go to the Okanagan valley. I have family there but you might be curious to know that this is BC's wine country.

Another popular spot is Vancouver Island. There is lots to do here and Victoria is particularily popular with a lot of people.

The gulf islands like Saltspring and Galiano will make you feel like you are on another planet! It takes some explaining to help you figure out how to get there - but our link partners will help you with that.
