A well-kept secret hidden within the Upper Fraser Valley of British Columbia's southwest coastal region. The District of Kent is bounded on the north by Harrison Lake and Green Mountain, on the west by Harrison River, on the south by the Fraser River and on the east by Hope and the Fraser Canyon. Much of the District is made up of the rich and fertile alluvial floodplain of the Fraser River.
The community of Agassiz, with a population of just over 6000, rests at the intersection of Highway #9 and Highway #7 and offers all the conveniences one might need. It boasts the friendly community spirit of a regional farming community within any establishment you might wish to visit. Steep canyon-like walls along the Harrison River, the heights and crags of Mt. Woodside and Green Mountain and spectacular views of the Cheam Mountain range along the south side of the Fraser River offer spectacular vistas and topographic relief from the vast expanses of our productive farmlands.
Farming and other agricultural uses are the predominant make-up of the rich heritage, history and community spirit of our District. Our small community lifestyle includes comfortable, friendly surroundings, assured accessibility and conveniences, peace of mind and solitude; yet affords easy connection with the best of the bustling, full service communities within an hour or less drive to the west. The District of Kent is a year-round playground where on the same day you can swim, tan, boat or fish at one of the area's several lakes, rivers and creeks, tee-off at one of the five area golf- courses, mountain bike, hike or snow-ski at Hemlock Valley, hang glide at one of two world class jump off points or wander and explore along the dozens of valley floor and mountain trails within the region.
Our community is proud of its history and heritage. Cultural events, historical sites and museums such as the Kilby Store at Harrison Mills or the Agassiz Museum in downtown Agassiz offer glimpses of the past and provide the basis for the rich heritage and community spirit that abound within our borders.
