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 [[UsefulNotes/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". 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 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; the Expo featured the opening of Vancouver's light-rail transit system, the [=SkyTrain=]; as of 2006, the [=SkyTrain=] held the record for the longest fully-automated rapid-transit system in the world.

* Though it hasn't been seen on-screen, ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has the Equestrian city of Vanhoover; this may be an in-joke as the series is largely produced out of Vancouver.

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.



* ''Series/TheManInTheHighCastle'': Used to double a Japanese-occupied West Coast.



* ''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. This is noted by a British news reporter based in Vancouver who also mentions that Canadian troops have increased their presence in the U.S.-Canada border.
