British Columbia
BRITISH COLUMBIA is the westernmost province of Canada , with a population of more than four million people located between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains. British Columbia is also a component of the Pacific Northwest and the Cascadia bioregion , along with the U.S. states of Alaska , Idaho , western Montana , Oregon , and Washington state . The first British settlement in the area was Fort Victoria , established in 1843, which gave rise to the city of Victoria , at first the capital of the separate Colony of Vancouver Island . Subsequently, on the mainland, the Colony of British Columbia (1858–66) was founded by Richard Clement Moody and the Royal Engineers, Columbia Detachment , in response to the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush . Moody was Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works for the Colony and the first Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia : he was hand-picked by the Colonial Office in London to transform British Columbia into the British Empire's "bulwark in the farthest west", and "to found a second England on the shores of the Pacific". Moody selected the site for and founded the original capital of British Columbia, New Westminster , established the Cariboo Road and Stanley Park , and designed the first version of the Coat of arms of British Columbia

Lower Mainland
The LOWER MAINLAND is a name commonly applied to the region surrounding and including Vancouver , British Columbia , Canada . As of 2016, 2,832,000 people (60% of British Columbia 's total population), lived in the region; sixteen of the province's thirty most populous municipalities are located there. Islands contained within rivers in the region are considered to be part of the Lower Mainland. While the term _Lower Mainland_ has been recorded from the earliest period of non-native settlement in British Columbia, it has never been officially defined in legal terms. The British Columbia Geographical Names Information System (BCGNIS) comments that most residents of Vancouver might consider it to be only areas west of Mission and Abbotsford, while residents in the rest of the province consider it to be the whole region south of Whistler and west of Hope. However, the term has historically been in popular usage for over a century to describe a region that extends from Horseshoe Bay south to the Canada–United States border and east to Hope at the eastern end of the Fraser Valley . Climate, ecology and geology of the Lower Mainland are consistent enough that it has been classified as a separate ecoregion (the Lower Mainland Ecoregion ) within the Ecological framework of Canada, used by both Federal and Provincial Environment Ministries

Regional Districts Of British Columbia
The Canadian province of British Columbia
British Columbia
is partitioned into REGIONAL DISTRICTS, as a means to better enable municipalities and rural areas to work together at a regional level. Similar to counties in other parts of Canada, regional districts serve only to provide municipal services as the local government in areas not incorporated into a municipality , and in certain regional affairs of shared concern between residents of unincorporated areas and those in the municipalities such as a stakeholder role in regional planning . In those predominantly rural areas, regional districts provide services such as land use planning , building inspection and some responsibility for community fire protection . Regional districts also provide some services, such as solid-waste management , but otherwise differ from counties in having no powers or similar bodies with other arms of government whose powers are much more sweeping, including forests, environment, health, schools, provincial and courts. They are not the equivalent of counties and their powers and democratic mandate are substantially weaker. Most land within a regional district is under control of other arms of the provincial government, or in the case of national parks and offshore waters, of the federal government
