It is the larval lifestage of a Predaceous Diving Beetle, family Dytiscidae, likely of genus Dytiscus. It is extremely similar to Dytiscus verticalus, but that particular species is not present in British Columbia.
However, there are (8) Dytiscus species which are present in British
alaskanus, D. circumcinctus, D. cordieri, D. dauricus,
D. fasciventris, D. harrisii, D. hatchi, D.
marginicollis), and I believe it to be one of those.
