Vancouver Burnaby is a character from the first season of Canadian Boys.
Vancouver is a 16-year-old boy of White English Canadian heritage. He has brown hair and dark hazel eyes. He wears a red shirt, a pair of navy blue jeans fastened in place with a belt, and black-and-burgundy shoes with revealing holes in the top. Vancouver has a girlfriend, Victoria, who is a year younger than him.
Vancouver frequently suffers from an itchy scalp, making him scratch his head a lot, which annoys Victoria a little. He has to wash his hair regularly to relieve the itchiness.
Despite being 16 years old, and being a student at senior high school, Vancouver is rather silly for a boy of his age. He has poor concentration and a very limited attention span, often getting carried away daydreaming in inappropriate situations, such as working on school assignments or doing homework. This can also sometimes put him in danger, like if he's running and he doesn't notice that the floor is being cleaned, causing him to slip up and possibly fall over.

Vancouver is the tertiary protagonist of the 2017 video game Freddy for Action. As in the series, he can be dimwitted and slow, but he finds out his true strength after battling alongside Toronto and Montreal.

- Vancouver was the first Canadian Boys character to appear even before the actual Canadian Boys franchise itself began in January 2011. He debuted in the American Boys/Canadian Boys animated short, Seattle vs. Vancouver, in which the American Boys character Seattle fights Vancouver in an impromptu battle to find out who is better (in terms of location rather than personality).
- Vancouver and his girlfriend, Victoria, were originally going to be brother and sister, though this was changed to boyfriend and girlfriend just before the Canadian Boys series started.
- Vancouver was born on April Fool's Day, which might explain his continuous goofiness and clumsiness.
- Vancouver's favourite condiment is apparently tomato ketchup. He never has a burger or hot dog without a squeeze of it, and he even loves to snack on ketchup-flavoured potato chips. It also matches the bright red colour of his shirt.
