Host City: Richmond

Richmond is the fourth largest city in BC, just 25 minutes south of downtown Vancouver and 25 minutes north of the United States border – a city of stunning mountain vistas, beautiful waterfront sunsets and vibrant urban living.

Known for the Gulf of Georgia Cannery and Britannia Shipyards National Historic Sites, the charming seaside village of Steveston, world-famous Asian summer night markets, Chinese New Year celebrations and other special events throughout the year, Richmond, BC, gives visitors a unique “Far East meets West Coast” experience of authentic Asian culture along with the attractions and activities of the Lower Mainland’s Western Seaboard.

Many of the city’s facilities have also been rated for accessibility. The City of Richmond has partnered with the Rick Hansen Foundation (RHF) on an online accessibility rating tool called planat, which gives in-depth accessibility ratings to over 25 City and partner facilities.
