Vancouver and the metropolitan area is home to diverse ethnicities, mainly coming from East and Southeast Asia. There is a large population of Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Indians, and Filipinos here. It is also been stated to be the most "American" city in Canada, due to the large number of American visitors as well as American expatriates.

* ''VideoGame/{{Homefront}}'': The backstory mentions that U.S. Armed Forces in the nearby Washington State attempted to resist the KPA invasion but were overrun and forced to retreat to British Columbia.
