Investing in Township of Langley, British Columbia



Region:  Lower Mainland/Southwest

Regional District:  Greater Vancouver

Known as the 'Birthplace of BC', the Township of Langley is rich in heritage and rural beauty - as it is equally one of the most vibrant and fastest growing municipalities in BC's lower mainland.

Centrally located in the lower mainland, and just 45 kilometres east of Vancouver, the Township of Langley has a land mass of 316 square kilometres (122 square miles).  Today, our population is ~130,000, which is expected to double by 2040.

Considered by BC Business Magazine for 2017 as the "Top 5 Best Cities for Work" , the Township of Langley has much to offer for businesses to explore, experience and excel.

With easy access to the newly expanded Trans Canada Highway and newly constructed Port Mann Bridge, the safe and efficient mobility of people, goods and services offers competitive advantage.  For ease in national and  international shipping, fully-integrated road, rail, port and airport infrastructure as well as access to USA / international border are right here in the Township.

The Township's five industrial areas, featuring serviced and unserviced industrial lands, offer  competitive land prices and levies.

Hosting Canada's largest cluster of heli / aerospace businesses, our YNJ Langley Regional Airport is considered a growing centre of excellence for rotary-wing aircraft.

With the majority of our lands being located within the Agricultural Land Reserve, agriculture and farming have always played an integral role in our community. Innovation and creativity within the agri-community has resulted in farmers creating new ways to live off their land through the exploration of  agri-tourism marketing techniques, technology, and niche markets. From world-class wines to seasonal berries, from organic turkeys to Christmas trees, the Township produces the most varied agricultural production in Canada. These new and profitable ways to work the land has seen traditional food production morph into an industry where local farm gate receipts total some $200 million/year.

With accredited post-secondary education institutions in the community, access to qualified and skilled local talent is readily available through Trinity Western University and Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

The Township of Langley is considered to be one of the most film-friendly municipalities in BC's lower mainland.  With the film industry investing ~$35 million/year in direct spend producing feature films, TV series, made-for-TV movies and more, the municipality hosts hundreds of productions each year.
