Lululemon founder Chip Wilson can once again lay claim to B.C.’s most expensive home.

But where will you find it? And where will you see other properties that rank among the province’s priciest?

BC Assessment released its 2016 property assessments on Monday, showing just how much homes were worth on July 1, 2015.

Wilson’s Kitsilano home was the most expensive in the province for the third consecutive year, with prices in other areas seeing “significant” increases in the past year.

The total assessment for the Greater Vancouver area climbed to $636 billion from $547 billion in 2015, the authority said Monday.

Almost all of B.C.’s most expensive homes were in upscale Vancouver neighbourhoods, aside from a few outliers like James Island in the Gulf Islands.

The Huffington Post B.C. looked at the 500 most valuable properties to see where they were located around the province.

Here are nine neighbourhoods that house the priciest ones*:
