If I recall correctly, Vancouver Island gets snow almost every
winter, but the ground generally doesn't freeze? If that's
correct, and you can achieve good drainage, you might want to
look to a winter crop of cruciforms [cabbage, broccoli,
cauliflower, etc.] or cold-hardy root vegetables such as radishes
or carrots. You do need to realize that this is very iffy,
though. In Bellingham, it used to get cold enough about one
winter in five that we lost the winter veggies. Your best bet
for the kind of information you need is a local gardening club,
or your local agricultural office.
