Traveling to Vancouver. Pre-paid mobile data plans?

I'll be in Vancouver and the surrounding area next week. What's the best way for me to get data on my cellphone? Something like a prepaid mobile SIM card tied to a data plan. Just relying on wifi isn't an option as half of the time I won't be in the city.

1. I'm not from the US or Canada so if some kind of ID is needed a passport will have to be okay.
2. The place to sign up for the plan should be accessible, ideally somewhere in the airport or in downtown Vancouver.
3. It doesn't cost too much. I'm actually planning to put the SIM card in a portable wifi hotspot I have, and sharing the data with 4 other people, so we're okay with it being a little pricey, but probably not hundreds of dollars.
4. I'm looking at around ~1GB of data over 2 weeks.
