The next largest island, Sea Island, is home to the Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

The Township of Richmond, Lennox County, Ontario was named for Governor General for British North America, Charles Lennox, 4th Duke of Richmond, Richmond, Yorkshire, England.
The first published reference to "Richmond" was a pamphlet about the local farmstead established on Sea Island by Hugh Mc Roberts.
The Township of Richmond was modeled after Ontario’s political townships – an incorporated municipality, consisting of communities that are united as a single entity with a single municipal administration.
Each community was represented on the municipal council through a ward electoral system with five wards until 1946 when the ward electoral system was replaced with the at large electoral system that is currently in place.
Richmond comprises most of the islands in the Fraser River delta, the largest and most populated island being Lulu Island.
The city of Richmond includes all but a small portion of Lulu Island (the Queensborough neighbourhood at the far eastern tip is part of the city of New Westminster).Richmond's 2016 population of 198,309 makes it the fourth largest city in British Columbia, after Vancouver (631,486), Surrey (517,887) and Burnaby (232,755).More than half of its population is of Asian descent, many of whom immigrated in the late 1980s, mostly from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Mainland China.On December 3, 1990, Richmond was designated as a City.The first Town Hall, the Agricultural Hall and the Methodist Church (now Minoru Chapel), were built at the corner of No.17 (River) Rd and No.20 (Cambie) Rd near the main settlement on the northwestern tip of Lulu Island at North Arm.The drawback of Richmond's geographical location was that since all the land averages just one metre above sea level, it was prone to flooding, especially during high tide.
