* ''Series/{{Sliders}}'', Seasons 1 and 2, where Vancouver doubled for UsefulNotes/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.)

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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/FearTheWalkingDead'': Does not appear in the show physically but was mentioned by George Greary in Season 2 that all cities in the American West Coast to the Continental Divide, from San Diego all the way up to Seattle and Vancouver, were bombed in order to eradicate the infected.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/Homefront'' The backstory mentions that U.S. Armed Forces in Washington attempted to resist the KPA invasion but were overrun and forced to retreat to British Columbia. This is noted by a British news reporter based in Vancouver which also mentions that Canadian troops have increased their presence in the U.S.-Canada border.

Vancouver has become the third-largest film production centre in North America, being called ''Hollywood North'' because of it. This has led to the increased presence of [[TheOtherRainforest the Pacific Northwest]], particularly UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}} (for which Vancouver often [[CaliforniaDoubling doubles]]), in American media, leading to the term "Seacouver" to describe the vaguely northwestern-ish setting of works filmed in Vancouver, but just as possibly set south of the border in the United States. Among the works shot in Vancouver are all three shows in the StargateVerse, hence the original trope name "Stargate City".

City". Tony Zhou, a Vancouver native and creator of ''WebVideo/EveryFrameAPainting'', did an episode titled [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojm74VGsZBU "Vancouver Never Plays Itself"]] about how the city is so often disguised as somewhere else in film and television.

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]], leading to the use of 'Raincouver' by residents as a semi-affectionate nickname.
