I don't think so.. According to https://www.birdatlas.bc.ca/ we also have Mountain and Boreal in this area

Chestnut-backed, Black-capped, Mountain and Boreal are the chickadees in your area. @Aaron mentioned that he seen almost all chickadees, except for Chestnut-backed and Mexican, so I was wondering if he's seen the rarest of them all.

Was unaware there even was a gray-headed.... 🤔 Guess I haven’t almost seen all chickadees then ha! Guess I gotta go to Finland 

I’ve found mountain chickadees are far more common in my area in BC than any others

Or North Alaska

That seems more realistic. Maybe one day.... 

Checked the records for Canada and there’s only two in the Yukon, from 1989 and 1864!

Not really... Gray-headed Chickadee is like, impossibly difficult to find in the ABA area, only in super remote parts of the Brooks Range in Northern Alaska.

@Victor DI've heard a couple of them this week in Strathcona in Vancouver but haven't seen one yet this year. Last year they were around pretty consistently once they arrived for a couple of months. If I see them settle somewhere I'll let you know.

Would it be easier to photograph the Black-Capped and photoshop it into Chestnut??? 😈 Ha!
