About This Item
This wooden maple leaf recalls the maple leaf on the national flag of Canada. Most people people living in the United States couldn’t name many cities in Canada, unless they live in the northern tier of states or Alaska. This series of “Canada” travel bugs brings attention to the largest metropolitan areas in that country.
Vancouver is a coastal seaport city on the mainland of provincial British Columbia. It has the third largest metropolitan population in Canada. The city is one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities in the country; 52% of its residents have a first language other than English. The Greater Vancouver area of around 2.4 million inhabitants is the third most populous metropolitan area in Canada. The original settlement, named Gastown, grew around the Hastings Mill logging sawmill and a nearby tavern, both established in 1867. Enlarging to become the townsite of Granville, with the announcement that the railhead would reach the site it was renamed Vancouver and incorporated as a city in 1886. By 1887, the transcontinental railway was extended to the city to take advantage of its large natural seaport, which soon became a vital link in a trade route between the Orient, Eastern Canada, and London. As of 2009, Port Metro Vancouver is the busiest and largest port in Canada, and the most diversified port in North America. While forestry remains its largest industry, Vancouver is well known as an urban centre surrounded by nature, making tourism its second-largest industry. Major film production studios in Vancouver and Burnaby have turned Metro Vancouver into one of the largest film production centres in North America, earning it the film industry nickname, Hollywood North.
