Vancouver is a bustling port city on the west coast of British Columbia. It is one of the cities in Canada that is not only densely populated but also most ethnically diverse. As the city is surrounded by mountains and has centres for thriving art, music, and theatre, it is a popular filming location as well. Located close to the Fraser River and the Strait of Georgia waterways, Burrard Inlet, and Howe Sound, many people have settled down in Vancouver and carried out trades for many thousands of years. The original inhabitants of Vancouver are the indigenous peoples from the Northwest Pacific Coast. According to archaeological records, the occupation of this area by the Aboriginal people can be traced back to 8,000/10,000 years. José María Narváez, a Spanish Captain, and George Vancouver, a British naval Captain, were the first Europeans to explore the place in 1791 and 1792, respectively. However, the Europeans settled down in this area only by 1862
