British Columbia has fantastic granitic and volcanic slot canyons with strong flowing water (often glacier melt).
Thanks to the recent movie Down the line the regions has gain visibility in international canyoning forums as well as seen a strong growth in the local canyoning fans.
Since the region has discovered canyoning just recently, there are a LOT of new canyons yet to be explored. Some prospects are reflected on the map but there are MANY more documented at http://www.canyoneeringnorthwest.com/Canadian_Prospects.php and even more yet waiting to be documented.
When to go
In general the best season is summer, that is when the weather is at its best and water flow is not too high, however the region also has a couple of great spring canyons. Conditions will depend on the snowpack and recent rains, so if planning a trip there it's better to get in touch with the locals (Vancouver Canyoning Group) to get their insight for that season.
How to get there
Vancouver is a cosmopolitan city with a great international airport, however it may be cheaper to fly to Seattle (Washington) and then drive 3h to cross into Canada by car.
