Holy Rosary Cathedral has the only set of ringable bells for Change Ringing in Vancouver.

Other Change Ringing towers in the Pacific North-West region of North America are listed below.

Ringers who visit Vancouver often include a visit to Victoria. Although only about 3 ½ hours from Vancouver by car (or public transit) and ferry, it is not possible to ring for the regularly scheduled ringing in both places on the same day for either Sunday Service ringing or Tuesday practice.
