The YUAA can be catalogued even according to the alumni's colleges, majors, and their work places. The YUAA Office Hall was purchased in 1972 at Daemyung-Dong, Daegu, which was the first among all college alumni associations in Korea to be used only for the purpose of alumni services. The YUAA built a New Office Hall on the building site of 462-pyung at Shinchun-Dong, Daegu, in Feb-1995, of the size of 5-story building including the basement. In Sept-1996 it became to own an Annex of 4-story building with the basement that made the YUAA Office Hall own the real estate larger than any other alumni association in Korea might have.

Belcarra is the only community in this area that is not growing substantially. Even neighbouring Anmore, another tiny community has grown and changed, but Belcarra has remained a relatively small community. This is a result of its small size, carved out of a major regional park, and zoning only for single family residential homes. With a population of 690 as of 2010, it has the lowest population of any independent settlement in the Vancouver area. Many residents in Belcarra have private docks and boats; even houses that are not on the water are sometimes able to procure a shared dock. Belcarra Regional Park winds its way through the village. thumb People who have self-identified as having German ancestors are the majority (File:Censusdivisions-ethnic.png) in many parts of the Prairie provinces (areas coloured in yellow).

'''Burrard Inlet''' is a relatively shallow-sided coastal fjord in southwestern British Columbia, Canada. Formed during the last Ice Age, it separates the City of Vancouver and the rest of the low-lying Burrard Peninsula (to the south) from the slopes of the North Shore Mountains, home to the communities of West Vancouver and the City (North Vancouver, British Columbia (city)) and District of North Vancouver (North Vancouver, British Columbia (district municipality)). Municipalities Municipalities on the peninsula include—in roughly west-to-east order—the Cities of Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Port Moody, Coquitlam, and Port Coquitlam. The University Endowment Lands (University Endowment Lands, British Columbia) (home to the main campus of the University of British Columbia) occupy unincorporated territory at the far west end of the peninsula, at Point Grey. North of the isthmus separating the peninsula from the mainland are the Villages of Belcarra and Anmore which are not on the peninsula proper, but are only accessible by road via the Burrard Peninsula. The town of Squamish had its beginning during the construction of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway in the 1910s. It was the first southern terminus of that railway (now a part of CN (Canadian National Railway)). The town remains important in the operations of the line and also the port. Forestry has traditionally been the main industry in the area, and the town's largest employer was the Western Forest Products pulp mill. However, Western Pulp, Squamish Operation permanently ceased operation on January 26, 2006. Western Forest Products Western Forest Products Announces Q1 2006 Results Strategic Acquisitions Closed. Press Release, May 12, 2006. retrieved on: July 30, 2007. Before the pulp mill, the town's largest employer had been International Forest Products (Interfor) with their sawmill and logging operation, but it closed a few years prior to the pulp mill. In recent years, Squamish has also become popular with Vancouver and Whistler (Whistler, British Columbia) residents' escaping the increased cost of living in those places, both less than one hour away by highway. Tourism is an increasingly important part of the town's economy with an emphasis in outdoor recreation. Squamish received an influx of visitors during the 2010 Olympics (2010 Winter Olympics), as it was a convenient place to stay seeing as it is equidistant from Vancouver and Whistler Ski Resort (Whistler, British Columbia), where most events were held. In addition, the Transportation Team base for 4 transit companies contracted to operate services for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics was located on Queens Way from December 2009 until April 12, 2010. The AMC (AMC (TV channel)) series ''The Killing (The Killing (U.S. TV series))'' stars Mireille Enos as Sarah Linden, a lead Seattle Police homicide detective.

One is the loss of ‘secularized’ Canadians as active and regular participants in the churches and denominations they grew up in, which were overwhelmingly Christian, while these churches remain a part of Canadians cultural identity. The other is the increasing presence of ethnically diverse immigration within

'''Vancouver''' ( ; Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish language): ''K'emk'emelay''), title Knowing Coves accessdate December 26, 2014 url http: zuky.tumblr.com post 68067156016 officially the '''City of Vancouver,''' is a coastal seaport city on the mainland (Lower Mainland) of British Columbia, Canada. The 2011 census (Canada 2011 Census) recorded 603,502 people in the city, making it the eighth largest (List of the 100 largest municipalities in Canada by population) Canadian municipality. The Greater Vancouver area of around 2.4 million inhabitants is the third most populous metropolitan area (List of the 100 largest metropolitan areas in Canada) in the country and the most populous in Western Canada. Vancouver is one of the most ethnically (Ethnic groups in Canada) and linguistically diverse cities in Canada; 52% of its residents have a first language other than English. Vancouver is classed as a Beta global city (global city). The City of Vancouver encompasses a land area of about 114 square kilometres, giving it a population density of about 5,249 people per square kilometre (13,590 per square mile). Vancouver is the most densely populated Canadian municipality, and the fourth most densely populated city over 250,000 residents in North America, behind New York City, San Francisco, and Mexico City.

The original settlement, named Gastown, grew up on clearcuts on the west edge of the Hastings Mill logging sawmill's property, where a makeshift tavern had been set up on a plank between two stumps and the proprietor, Gassy Jack, persuaded the curious millworkers to build him a tavern, on July 1, 1867. From that first enterprise, other stores and some hotels quickly appeared along the waterfront to the west. Gastown became formally laid out as a registered townsite dubbed Granville, B.I. (Granville, British Columbia) ("B.I" standing for "Burrard Inlet"). As part of the land and political deal whereby the area of the townsite was made the railhead of the CPR, it was renamed "Vancouver" and incorporated shortly thereafter as a city, in 1886. By 1887, the transcontinental railway (Canadian Pacific Railway) was extended to the city to take advantage of its large natural seaport, which soon became a vital link in a trade route between the Orient, Eastern Canada, and Europe. As of 2009, Port Metro Vancouver is the busiest and largest port in Canada, and the most diversified port in North America. While forestry remains its largest industry, Vancouver is well known as an urban centre surrounded by nature, making tourism (Tourism in Canada) its second-largest industry. Major film production studios in Vancouver and Burnaby have turned Metro Vancouver into one of the largest film production (principal photography) centres in North America, earning it the film industry nickname, Hollywood North.

Vancouver is consistently named as one of the top five worldwide cities for livability and quality of life, and the Economist Intelligence Unit acknowledged it as the first city to rank among the top-ten of the world's most liveable cities for five consecutive years. Vancouver has hosted many international conferences and events, including the 1954 British Empire and Commonwealth Games, UN Habitat I, Expo 86, and the World Police and Fire Games in 1989 and 2009. In 2014, following thirty years in California, Vancouver became the indefinite home of the annual TED (TED (conference)) conference. Canada will host the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, and several matches will be played in Vancouver, including the final at BC Place Stadium. The 2010 Winter Olympics and 2010 Winter Paralympics were held in Vancouver and nearby Whistler (Whistler, British Columbia), a resort community north of the city.
