A coastal city in south-western British Columbia, the City of Vancouver is on the traditional territory of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. The downtown core resides on a peninsula bordered by English Bay and Burrard Inlet. Framed by the vast Pacific Ocean and the Coast Mountains, Vancouver's meandering oceanside pathways are the perfect way to explore the city.
This city is well renowned for its natural beauty and cultural diversity. For thousands of years, the Coast Salish people called the area known as Vancouver home. The Salish people’s history and cultural traditions show deep respect for nature, and spirituality is woven into the city's cultural fabric.
