Discover Vancouver

The 8th FSC General Assembly 2017 will take place in Vancouver, Canada at The Westin Bayshore Hotel.

The Canadian city has much in common with FSC: nature and urban environments coexist in harmony in Vancouver, the city is multicultural, and embraces its First Nations heritage.


Vancouver is located on the Pacific Ocean in the province of British Columbia, the westernmost Canadian province. Vancouver is the biggest harbour in Canada and the most populated city of British Columbia with 4.6 million inhabitants.

The climate is temperate and temperatures are moderate compared with other regions in Canada. In October, they usually vary between 8°C and 15°C.

Cultural life is active all year round in the city, and there is a huge choice of outdoor activities. You can cycle, go for a hike, ski, or windsurf in Vancouver or nearby.

You will find more details to prepare for your visit at the Tourism Vancouver website.
