Vancouver



Vancouver is a town in the south-west of British Columbia and on the west coast of Canada. It is the third largest city of Canada. The population is 611.869 and it's named after the British captain George Vancouver, who explored the area in the 1790s. 52% don't speak English as their first language, almost 30% of them are Chinese. That's why the city is often called Vankong or Hongcouver.
