Millions of people from different cultures, backgrounds, and identities converge in the lower mainland.
Metro Vancouver is the largest urban region in BC and is made up of dozens of different municipalities and First Nations communities. Nearly 2.5 million people live, work, and play here. Bound by the coastal mountain range, the communities that make up Metro Vancouver bring together a diverse range of people, cultures with rich, locally produced goods that can be found at a great selection of regional farmers’ markets.
From Burnaby, Surrey, and Richmond to New Westminster, Port Moody, and Coquitlam to Ladner, Langley, White Rock and beyond, different communities and people are what give the sprawling region its unique charm. A mix of ethnic backgrounds and cuisines, local histories, along with modern urban centres bring the multicultural mosaic to life in Metro Vancouver.
