The province of British Columbia is located on Canada’s western coast. This sprawling province is bordered on its west by the Pacific Ocean, and by Alaska to its northwest. To the north there in the Yukon and Northwest Territories, on the east is the province of Alberta and the Rocky Mountains, and to the south are the US states of Washington, Idaho, and Montana. The province was named in 1858 for the British Queen Victoria, although it was settled far earlier by various indigenous tribes.
The capital of British Columbia is the city of Victoria, also titled for the queen who bequeathed her name to the province – and its largest city is Vancouver. Its population numbers a mere 4.5 million, although 2.5 million of these are centered in the metropolitan area of Vancouver. The official language is English, a fact that makes it easier for global entrepreneurs to establish a company in British Columbia. The province boasts breathtaking natural landscapes, impressive mountain ridges, rivers and forests, and the Pacific coastline that offers a very different sea-going experience than that familiar to us in the Middle East.For Viewing Canada, B.C. in Google Maps - Click Here
The economy of British Columbia is primarily resource dominated, such as a large and very developed quarry industry, natural gas and oil, and power generation by hydroelectric plants. Additional natural resources also constitute important sectors in local economy, such as forestry and fishing. As this province is Canada’s gateway to the Pacific Ocean, British Columbia is the international trade hub for the country and all of North America. The successful and developed tourism industry generates over USD 13 billion each year. Also, this province is considered the “Hollywood of the North”, home to the fourth-largest film and television production industry in North America.
The city of Vancouver is the financial center of British Columbia, its economy based on an extensive financial services sector. Businesses in the area enjoy an official policy designed to reduce regulations on the sector, as well as communications, transportation and banking.
