Upscale plates for Beautifu British Columbia
New Provincial Park inspired plates will be soon be sold in B.C. All the proceeds will go directly to the Provincial parks.

I'm leaning towards the Kermode Bear also known as the Spirit Bear and I think this will be a favourite of most buyers. The mountain scene will match my car's colours better LOL

Porteau Cove plate

The picturesque view of Porteau Cove overlooking Howe Sound was chosen to represent
British Columbia’s stunning South Coast. Porteau Cove Provincial Park, situated on the
most southerly fjord in North America, is among the most popular provincial parks.
Open year-round, this park features beautiful waterfront campsites, although Porteau
Cove is perhaps best known for scuba diving. A series of man-made reefs and two sunken
vessels, as well as an amazing array of marine life, provide exceptional scuba diving
opportunities. Other recreational opportunities, including hiking, wildlife viewing and
windsurfing, also abound at Porteau Cove Provincial Park.
The park is also home to the Porteau Cove Olympic Legacy Cabins, which were used during
the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. With its location between Horseshoe Bay and Squamish,
Porteau Cove Provincial Park was once originally the site of sand and gravel mining,
to supply the Vancouver industry.

Purcell Mountains plate

The majestic Purcell Mountains symbolize the province’s interior region. The snow-capped
peaks make up the natural backdrop of the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy Provincial
Park and Protected Area in southeastern B.C.
The Purcell Wilderness Conservancy Park and Protected Area is one of the first large-scale
wilderness areas in Canada to be set aside as a result of local citizen action, and is
defined by a nearly pristine mountain landscape. The Purcell Wilderness Conservancy Park
is also the largest intact ecosystem in southeastern BC – the Purcell Mountains. The
Purcell Mountains feature high glacial mountains, stunning alpine lakes, lush wetlands,
old-growth forests and rushing rivers. Experienced outdoor adventurers, such as hikers
and mountain climbers, revel in the unprecedented beauty and tranquility of the Purcell
Mountains in the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy Park and Protected Area.

Kermode Bear plate

Found only in British Columbia, the legendary Kermode Bear is a rare subspecies of black
bear, and can be found between the Burke Channel in the south and roughly up to the Nass
River in the north. This captivating photo was chosen to illustrate British Columbia’s
vast, rugged northern region. The Kermode Bear is not albino, but rather it is a black bear
that has white fur due to a rare genetic trait. The animal is recognized as one of British
Columbia’s provincial symbols, which highlight unique and important elements across the province.
This image also coincides with the finalization in Feb. 2016 of the Great Bear Rainforest
Land Use Order, and the Great Bear Rainforest (Forest Management) Act, which received Royal
Assent in May 2016. The new regulations meet government’s commitment to the full
implementation of ecosystem-based management in the area.
