A list of Vancouver's 'famous faces' would probably go on for pages; among others, [[James Doohan]], Carrie-Anne Moss, Michael J. Fox, Ryan Reynolds and Michael Buble have all called the city 'home' at one point or another.

Vancouver, British Columbia, is a city of over 600,000 people, rising to over 2 million when you count the metropolitan area, nicknamed the "Lower Mainland" [[note]]Vancouver is on the lower part of the BC mainland[[/note]], which can reach as far as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbotsford,_British_Columbia Abbotsford]] and the Fraser Valley (around the Fraser River). Very popular among Chinese, Indians and British. It has a fairly extensive elevated train network called the [=SkyTrain=], which moonlights as a subway in the downtown area. Also quite [[http://cldpzza.wordpress.com/2011/05/23/vancouver-is-the-reason-there-are-so-many-draughts-in-the-world/ well known for its rain]].

Although it is the biggest city in British Columbia, it's not the capital of the province. The capital city is Victoria, which is situated, confusingly enough, on [[NamesTheSame Vancouver Island.]] It's usually just called "The Island" by locals. Ferries run between the island and the mainland every day, so travel between the two cities is very common.

Vancouver hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics, leading some parts of the Internet to refer to them as the "Stargate City Olympics". This came after hosting Expo '86 (the 1986 World's Fair), a minor transportation themed exposition, which the [=SkyTrain=] opened for.

* In ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'', the Zhang family has their big mansion somewhere in the outskirts. And by big we mean ''really'' [[BigFancyHouse big]], enough to have [[spoiler: a whole attic containing weapons.]] It's glimpsed in Frank's flashback at first, but the protagonists eventually visit it during their trip to Alaska. [[spoiler: Pity that it has to be destroyed.]]

* ''Series/{{Sliders}}'', Seasons 1 and 2, where Vancouver doubled for SanFrancisco, inverting CaliforniaDoubling as well. Starting with Season 3, it was written in that the Sliders could now travel to LosAngeles (where, strangely enough, shooting had also moved to.)
