Welcome to BikeForums.
That's a lot of cash to spend on your "first" bike, so do LOTS of research!!!
It's hard to answer your question without asking for more information.
What type of riding will you be doing - racing, fitness riding, club/group riding, etc? Are you looking for a road, mountain, cyclocross bike?
How tall are you, weight? Male, female?
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
Try a web search on BC or Canadian bicycling laws. As far as your investment in the equipment I'm sure you could find a perfectly fine bike for half that amount unless you are really looking towards heavy race competition.
