The Canada-US border has been closed for an awfully long time. But now restrictions are easing, and British Columbia is ready to welcome guests with fine food, thoughtful hospitality, and a world of delicious cultural experiences.
This is the season of reconnection—with ourselves, with each other, and with nature—and there’s no better place to connect than over food and drink. And while BC’s wild landscape offers solace and security in equal measure, the province’s restaurants, food trucks, breweries and farmers markets serve up fine wines and well-crafted beer, fresh-from-the-field produce, and all the creative bounty of local food artisans.
Be open to more and take your place at our table—it’s set with all the brightest flavors of Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Indigenous Peoples of this land.
