About This Item

canadamapleleafwood

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.

Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia and is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island off Canada's Pacific coast.   The metropolitan area of Greater Victoria, has a population of 344,615, making it the 15th most populous Canadian urban region.  Named after Queen Victoria of the UK, is one of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest. 

Prior to the arrival of European navigators in the late 1700s, the region was home to several communities of Coast Salish peoples, including the Songhees.  There was a fortified British trading post on the southern tip of Vancouver Island in 1841, but a more northerly was soon built in case Fort Vancouver fell into American hands.  Fort Victoria was founded on the site of present-day Victoria, in anticipation of the outcome of the Oregon Treaty in 1846

British settlement began in 1843. The city has retained a large number of its historic buildings, in particular its two most famous landmarks, the British Columbia Parliament Buildings (finished in 1897 and home of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia) and the Empress hotel (opened in 1908). The city's Chinatown is the second oldest in North America after San Francisco's.
