The inhabitants of British Columbia make up more than 13% of the country's population, and the population density of the area is higher than the national average.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.The province's mainland away from the coastal regions is somewhat moderated by the Pacific Ocean.Terrain ranges from dry inland forests and semi-arid valleys, to the range and canyon districts of the Central and Southern Interior, to boreal forest and subarctic prairie in the Northern Interior.The Okanagan area, extending from Vernon to Osoyoos at the United States border, is one of several wine and cider-producing regions in Canada.Other wine regions in British Columbia include the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island and the Fraser Valley.Queen Victoria chose British Columbia to distinguish what was the British sector of the Columbia District from the United States ("American Columbia" or "Southern Columbia"), which became the Oregon Territory on August 8, 1848, as a result of the treaty.British Columbia is bordered to the west by the Pacific Ocean and the American state of Alaska, to the north by Yukon Territory and the Northwest Territories, to the east by the province of Alberta, and to the south by the American states of Washington, Idaho, and Montana.
The province is currently governed by the British Columbia New Democratic Party in a minority government supported by the Green Party of British Columbia, led by John Horgan, who became premier as a result of a no-confidence motion on June 29, 2017.
The southern border of British Columbia was established by the 1846 Oregon Treaty, although its history is tied with lands as far south as California.
British Columbia's land area is 944,735 square kilometres (364,800 sq mi).
