         Dear Dr. Garratt:

         As Premier of the Province of British Columbia, I am pleased to support Vancouver’s
         proposal to host the 2016 International Aquarium Congress.

         Vancouver is a pacific coastal city situated between the Pacific Ocean and the grand
         Coastal Mountains. It is a world class destination with easy transportation access by land,
         water and air. It is a multicultural region with a vast array of sights and many
         accommodation options, as well as cultural and recreational activities, with an abundance
         of fresh air and fresh water.

         Vancouver also has state of the art conference facilities with experienced people to assist
         you with every aspect of your meeting needs. The popularity of Vancouver as a meeting
         site has resulted in the significant expansion of conference facilities in the downtown core.
         Vancouver’s conference meeting places are plentiful and have been enjoyed by many local,
         national and international groups. Their positive feedback speaks to the quality of the
         facilities, and the professional and hospitality services thereto associated.

         I support this bid application and appreciate your consideration of Vancouver for your
         deliberations.

         Sincerely,

eduCAtIon
The Vancouver Aquarium inspires people of all ages
through hands-on transformational learning experiences .

Every year, more than 60,000 school children visit
the Vancouver Aquarium and enjoy a wide variety of
curriculum based programs and general visits designed to
help teachers provide conservation-based learning outside
and beyond the classroom .

Since 1968, the Wet Lab, an aquatic classroom with live
animals, has provided a hands-on experience for school
children that they can’t receive from their regular school
environment .

Aqua Camp, an award-winning education program, allows
teachers to transport their classrooms to the Vancouver
Aquarium for a full week of hands-on, experiential learning .
Since 1998, more than 6,400 students, teachers and
parents have been a part of this program .

During each school year, the bC hydro AquaVan – our
hands-on, mobile classroom – delivers nearly 300 aquatic
programs with live marine creatures, props and activities
to almost 11,000 children and families in communities and
schools throughout BC and Alberta .

CommunIty
Locally, the Vancouver Aquarium is a great place to work,
volunteer, join in membership or simply visit to learn and
be inspired . Globally, we’re a leader in connecting people to
our natural world .

The Vancouver Aquarium promotes a sense of community
through our commitment to volunteerism . In 2010, the
Vancouver Aquarium’s 1,200 active volunteers generously
contributed over 85,000 hours of their time, expertise and
passion for aquatic conservation .

The Vancouver Aquarium is a leader in giving back to all
members of our community . We provide opportunities
for children with life-threatening illnesses to experience
marine life at events such as Dreamnight, an evening where
the Aquarium is open for extended hours giving visitors a
chance to connect with aquatic animals – away from their
hospital beds .

We provide our community with a unique venue for
events . In 2010, the Aquarium held more than 150 events
and welcomed nearly 20,000 guests in groups ranging from
30 to 1,700 .

teAm
We know many aquariums around the world are talking about, planning,
and working hard on their own sustainability, on their growing connections
to both existing and new audiences, and on the planning for all aspects of
their future . . . . . . . . .just as we are . Our 450 staff and 1,200 volunteers all hope
we have the opportunity to host the 2016 IAC because we want to further
those discussions . We expect to develop an active and diverse program
involving aquariums from all parts of the world – a program that focuses
on cross-over from one region to another, from one discipline to another,
and from each person to others .

As this booklet points out, Vancouver is a wonderful city to visit . We
know delegates will be interested in a full array of pre- and post- IAC tours
and workshops . We expect to take interested delegates onto the water,
into the mountains and to other parts of British Columbia’s amazingly
diverse natural environments .
