Metro Vancouver is a diverse collection of more than 20 cities, towns, suburbs and villages bound by ocean, mountains, rivers and rainforest.
An estimated 2.3 million people live in the region and the population is growing at about 1.5% a year as Metro Vancouver is one of the most popular destinations for new immigrants coming to Canada.
Vancouver is by far the most famous city in the region but many people who come to live here will find themselves living in a lesser known area outside the city.
