ADS-B is not being used in the airspace around Vancouver.  The new technology being used in that area is called Wide Area Multilateration, and has nothing to do with ADS-B.

WAM works off the Mode A/C transponders, and is basically a set of antennas that only determine range, and not direction, therefor you need at least three receivers to triangulate the position of that aircraft.

As far as I know, the only place in Canada to see ADS-B anytime soon is around the Hudson Bay area.

That is a good question Tomato.

I wonder if anyone in Nav Canada would be willing to answer that question if asked. The CBC Article mentions Ron Singer as the person they interviewed. A quick Google search turns up the following contact details:

Ron Singer
Communications Advisor
(613) 563-7303
