Two of BC’S dynamic cities are Vancouver and Victoria.
Vancouver is a world-class city renowned for its quality of life with worldwide rankings in being the most livable city for more than a decade. It is vital port city used to ship products between Asia, Canada and Europe whose industry also includes forest product, mining and, increasingly, software development, biotechnology and film.
