British Columbia is a province of Canada, the westernmost in the country, located on the Pacific Ocean. Its capital is Victoria and largest city is Vancouver. The southwest coast of the province near Vancouver and on Vancouver Island is home to the mildest weather in mainland Canada, and is thus a popular winter destination, perhaps outmatched by tourists per capita only by the Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean.
