Vancouver Whale Watching
From 2000 through 2004, Vancouver was rated as the city with the best quality of life in the world (surveys by the William M. Mercer company).
Today Vancouver is a bustling city of over two million, surrounded by the natural beauty of the Pacific Ocean and the majestic coastal mountain range. Termed the 'Crown Jewel of Western Canada', Vancouver is the financial, shipping, industrial and cultural centre of Canada's west coast.
In 2006, Canada's greatest city will play host to the World Junior Hockey Championships, and, in 2010, the Olypmic Winter Games.
