Home to the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition centre, it was originally constructed in 1986 as the Canadian Pavilion for the World Expo of the same year. Canada Place now functions as the Canadian Cruise terminal for the west coast ranging from trips down south to California and the more popular northern tours to Alaska.
Canada Place was expanded in 2001 to accommodate a second berth for cruise ships and is also the location of Port of Vancouver which oversees ships and their cargo coming in and out of the Burrard Inlet to Canada's busiest Port. Inside Canada Place there is also a Port of Vancouver Interpretive Centre for visitors to learn about the cargo vessels, the Port and other interesting facts and information.
Visitors can walk the different levels around the top, middle and bottom of Canada Place enjoying views of the North Shore Mountains, North Vancouver, Stanley Park and watch the Cruise ships departing in the spring, summer and fall and the seaplanes taking off. Canada Place is also the start point for the Vancouver Seawall.
