British Columbia



British Columbia

The sixth province to join into Confederation, British Columbia is Canada’s westernmost province, sharing a long, island-strewn coastline with the Pacific Ocean. Combine Washington, Oregon, and Montana into one giant state, and it would not equal the size of BC. And yet, half of BC’s population lives in the greater Vancouver area, leaving much of BC open to spectacular, unspoiled scenery. BC’s official motto gives testimony to its wall-to-wall beauty: “Splendor without diminishment.” Along with fresh local seafood (salmon, halibut, mussels), BC has built a unique brand of Pacific Northwest cuisine, inspired by regional game meats like caribou, elk, and moose and foraged foods like wild berries and mushrooms. A large Asian population is also helping shape the cuisine of British Columbia. In North America, only San Francisco has a larger Chinese community. In Vancouver’s backyard, meanwhile, just beyond the rain-catching Coast Mountains, the Okanagan Valley produces some of Canada’s best wines.
