Besides Ontario and Quebec, British Columbia (BC) is the most populated Canadian province with a population estimate of 4.8 million as of 2017. This means that British Columbians constitute up to 13% of Canada’s population. The province was formally a British colony until it evolved from British possession to its present state in 1871. British Columbia was originally inhabited by First Nations, a tribe of people with over 10,000 years of history in the area, comprising the Inuit, the Metis and so forth.
A 2013 statistic on British Columbia shows that 45% of the residents are overweight or obese, with 30.7% overweight and 14.3% obese.
