For the Capital Regional District (CRD) Basemap you can use:


In QGIS you can use the ArcGIS Rest Services Connection.

It depend what you are trying to do. GeoJSON data can be added to QGIS by saving your data as a .geojson file and simply dragging and dropping the file onto the map canvas, but this must be geographic data. (See here for valid geojson files: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeoJSON)

In your case, you might not need to do that - you are able to load the image in the href link by:

  1. Saving the image to your computer > Dragging and dropping the saved image file into QGIS
  2. Going to the layer CRS settings for the new layer
  3. Setting a coordinate reference system for the new layer (in your case, 26910).
