closeVancouver is a very young city; it wasn't until after the World Exposition in 1986 before Vancouver changed from a sleepy provincial city to a booming metropolis.
Even today the city continues to expand at a high rate: once abandoned industrial areas have thus turned into fashionable and lively districts such as Yaletown and Coal Harbour.

Not much more than a railyard in the 1980s, Coal Harbour has been transformed into an attractive neighbourhood along the waterfront near Stanley Park.
