The City of Vancouver – When the CPR announced Vancouver would be the railway’s terminus station, the town’s population was about 400. Four years after the railway arrived, the population expanded to 13,000. Incorporation came April 6, 1886 at a modest ceremony in Jonathan Miller’s house. A civic election followed quickly. A month later the first piece of business at the first meeting of Vancouver’s first city council, presided over by its first mayor, Malcolm Maclean, was the drafting of a petition to lease from the federal government a 1,000-acre military reserve to be used by the city as a park. This park later became Stanley Park. The mighty Fraser River has built up and shaped Vancouver’s islands and our city’s growth. The fishery and the rich Vancouver soil provided by the river has been the basis for our economy and industrial development. Vancouver’s history is rooted in fishing, agriculture, shipping, and aviation.
