The Cordillera is the most western geographic region in Canada. Formed over millions of years as a result of plate tectonics, this is a beautiful area with a varied landscape of high peaks, glaciers, rivers and fertile desert-like valleys. The ocean and mountains combine to influence both climate and vegetation. The west coast features ancient cedars, beautiful totem poles carved by First Nation groups and a spectacular coastline where some of the world's largest aquaculture farms can be found.
