Lower Mainland

Lower Mainland

 The Lower Mainland is the name that residents of British Columbia apply to the region surrounding the City of Vancouver. According to the 2001 census, over two million people live in the region; sixteen of the province's thirty most populous municipalities are located there.

While the term Lower Mainland has been recorded from the earliest period of non-native settlement in British Columbia, it has never been officially defined in legal terms. However, the term has historically been in popular usage for over a century to describe a region that extends from Horseshoe Bay south to the U.S. boundary and east to Hope at the eastern end of the Fraser Valley.
