The City of Port Moody, located at the head of Burrard Inlet, was the original terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway on the west coast of Canada, with the first passenger train arriving on July 4, 1886. Port Moody was incorporated as a municipality in 1913 with a population of just several hundred and has grown to a current population of about 34,000, with much of the growth occurring in the past three decades.
Port Moody was historically an industrial town because of its tidewater location and rail connections, with numerous sawmills, two oil refineries, a deep sea port terminal, a steel pipe plant, a chemical plant, and a natural gas-fired electricity generating plant dotting the waterfront.
While heavy industry remains an important part of Port Moody's economy, the community has grown and changed significantly over the past century, with many new residents and businesses that have transformed the city from a mill town to a modern urban community. This transformation continues, with the completion of the Evergreen Rapid Transit Line scheduled for completion in mid-2016 further enhancing economic opportunities for Port Moody, as well as making it an even more attractive community to live.
Today, Port Moody provides exceptional quality of life through arts and cultural experiences, a beautiful and rich natural environment, walkable neighbourhoods of unique character, and a thriving core.
