The latest data we have for Canada can be viewed in our development
repository on GIthub.  Currently, it begins at
https://github.com/eggert/tz/blob/master/northamerica#L1263 and continues
for some 1250 lines thereafter.

Information on how to read/decipher these data files can be found at
https://data.iana.org/time-zones/tz-how-to.html — or, feel free to ask any
clarifying questions.  But, in general, for each Zone listing, the last
line will indicate the offset from UTC and (in the RULES field) whether DST
is to be observed into the arbitrary future, while prior lines will denote
prior historical (or soon-to-be-historical) rules.

In particular,
https://github.com/eggert/tz/blob/master/northamerica#L2134-L2150 shows we
haven't made any changes to America/Vancouver.  I'm not sure we're aware of
any legislation from British Columbia.
