Who lives in the Pacific region?
More than 4 million people live in British Columbia. Most live around the cities of Vancouver and Victoria. Some people also live on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains! Many people from Asia have moved to this region because of its location to the Pacific Ocean.
Language of the Pacific region
English is the first language of many people in the Pacific region. Chinese is the second most common language of the people here. The people from India speak Punjabi and the people from the Philippines speak Tagalog.
The coast of the Pacific Ocean has a marine west coast climate. In Vancouver, temperatures in January average at 37°F (this is
warmer than other parts of Canada). Winter surfing is a sport! The high altitudes in the Rocky Mountains mean long, cold winters. If you are a skier or snowboarder, you can find some of Canada's best resorts in the Pacific region
This is winter surfing! Avid surfers who live in the Pacific region love to ride on the large waves that the winter storms bring in!
Buildings in the Pacific region
Influences from England are strong in the Pacific region. Victoria was the first city here and is known as being the most "British" in Canada. Some buildings here almost look like castles!
This is the Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, British Columbia.
Forestry and fishing are the most important industries in British Columbia (the only province in the Pacific region). Newer industries such as metals, shipping, and coal are becoming more popular.
SHIPPERS CARRY CANADIAN PRODUCTS FROM BRITISH COLUMBIA TO EVERY PART OF THE WORLD! MANY RIVERS HAVE DAMS SO THEY CAN CREATE HYDROELECTRIC POWER. IN FACT, A LOT OF THE ELECTRICITY GENERATED IN THESE DAMS IS SOLD TO THE UNITED STATES TO USE!
