Welcome to the Fraser Valley!
Fraser Valley Regional District covers over six municipalities, seven electoral areas, and 13,361.74 square kilometers (5,159 square miles) of land home to over 275,000 people. The municipalities consist of Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Langley, Mission, Harrison Hot Springs, Hope and Kent. FVRD is one of twenty-eight regional districts throughout British Columbia and out of that it is the third most populous. We are governed by a twenty-three member board with fifteen appointed by municipal councils and eight elected by Electoral area residents. The region traces the path of the Fraser River that winds itself through to the Pacific.
The majority of the Fraser Valley is farming and agricultural area and is one of the fastest growing regional districts, we have amazing active cities, peaceful rural communities and everything in between. As the Fraser Valley we were blessed to be British Columbia's richest agricultural lands. We are packed full of stunning landscapes at either end of the spectrum from the Rocky Canyon, home of the Fraser River, to the graceful valleys and to the soaring mountains, sophisticated urban amenities, as well as family-friendly hospitality. People flock to The Fraser Valley so they can live within arms reach of the richness that The Fraser Valley has to offer.
It's truly a remarkable place, to see where mother nature has created her boundaries, not man, and you can see her handiwork that possess great rewards for those wild at heart to explore. I love living in a place that's still a city but clings to the edge of nature and wilderness and not let it go.
