BC City Guide 2018: Nelson

Ask anyone from Nelson, and they’ll tell you the same thing: what makes the city great are its people. There are nearly 11,000 of them, and to say that they’re all on a first-name basis is just slightly stretching the truth. Nelson runs on Kootenay time (no one is ever...

BC City Guide 2018: Cranbrook

Most famous in some circles as the birthplace of hockey legend Steve Yzerman, Cranbrook is a city in the East Kootenay west of the Kootenay River. With just under 27,000 residents, it’s the most populous community in the East Kootenay region and a two-hour drive to Alberta. Its slogan is...

BC City Guide 2018: Quesnel

A city between two rivers (the Quesnel and Fraser), Quesnel first made it onto the map as Gold Pan City, thanks to its status as a gateway to gold-mining centre Barkerville. It quickly became the commercial axis of the Cariboo gold rush, which lasted from 1860 to 1863. Four years...

BC City Guide 2018: Williams Lake

Halfway between the Kamloops sun and the Prince George snow lies Williams Lake. Incorporated as a city in 1929, it takes its name from a nearby lake that in turn was named in honour of Chief William of the Sugar Lake Indian Reserve. For many years, Williams Lake’s economy leaned...

BC City Guide 2018: Prince Rupert

Tradition runs deep in Prince Rupert. More than a third of the 12,000-plus people who call the city home identify as Indigenous, and with that sense of history comes a respect for nature and the land. One of the best ways get to Prince Rupert is via the longest route offered...

BC City Guide 2018: Smithers

Some places naturally inherit a vibe that ends up defining them. Smithers, sandwiched between the two largest cities in the province’s Northwest region (Prince George and Prince Rupert), has made the most of its surroundings. B.C.’s first incorporated village officially became a town in 1967, and its success as a regional...

BC City Guide 2018: Prince George

The largest population centre in northern British Columbia, Prince George is located smack-dab in the middle of the province. It’s also far bigger than any other city in the region. Prince George owes its prominence to a 1908-14 land boom linked to the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway...

BC City Guide 2018: Fort St. John

“The Energetic City,” Fort St. John is the province’s largest centre north of Prince George. Though many British Columbians have never paid it a visit, the trading hub has thrived in recent years. At a respectable 3.4 percent from 2012 to 2017, Fort St. John’s population growth outpaced the B.C.

BC City Guide 2018: Dawson Creek

Dawson Creek is often thought of as the start or the end of a journey. That has much to do with its advantageous position on the Alaska Highway, which, depending on your view, begins or stops here. The Mile 0 City rose to prominence with the highway’s construction during the...

BC City Guide 2018: Kelowna

The largest city in the Okanagan Valley, Kelowna often wins praise for its natural beauty and geographical attractions. What else would you expect from a place with neighbourhood names like Big White and Lake Country? In fact, it’s reasonable to think you’ve arrived in some kind of Merlot-fuelled paradise when...

BC City Guide 2018: Kamloops

Kamloops bills itself as Canada’s Tournament Capital, so much so that the athletic complex near local Thompson Rivers University (TRU) is called Tournament Capital Centre. Besides hosting competitions ranging from the 2016 IIHF Women’s World Hockey Championships to the 2011 Western Canada Summer Games, the city embraces nature, as one...

Breaking Out: UBC program guides young tech minds

Were the folks who created Hatch, a technology incubator based on the UBC campus in Vancouver, aiming for the familiar trope of scientists huddled in a basement lab? Heading down into the bowels of the Institute for Computing, Information and...
