America/Vancouver is a time zone identifier from zone file of the IANA time zone database. The data is as follows:

Pacific Time - west British Columbia

The reference point is Vancouver.

Covered area

The covered area is the British Columbia region using Pacific Time with daylight saving time. Areas of British Columbia not observing DST are served by the America/Creston, America/Dawson_Creek, and America/Edmonton entries.

Some users in Pacific Time areas in Northwest United States use it in lieu of America/Los_Angeles, which is the correct time zone for that area, due to its closer geographic and cultural proximity. Tools and guides, such as Ubuntu Help[1] sometimes advise users setting their time zone to "use the closest city". [2][3][4]
