Did you know that

BC covers just about 10% of Canada’s surface area.

Less than 2% of the Provinces’s 364,764 square miles are covered by lakes and rivers

Only one US state, Alaska, is larger in surface area


Vancouver Island is about the size of Holland.

This should give you an idea of the size of BC.

There are over two million people living in the Lower Mainland (that’s about half the Province’s population ).

The entire BC coast is vulnerable to earthquakes.   That’s one of the reasons why ARES is frequently mentioned on this site
