The City of Langford is the thriving economic heart of Vancouver Island's West Short communities. With a rapidly growing population, a wealth of recreation opportunities and a stable, expanding retail and employment base, Langford offers an affordable, high quality lifestyle for all residents. The City prides itself on a progressive, cooperative approach to growth, and has streamlined approvals and permitting for new business and development.
Langford is one of several West Shore municipalities and borders the District of Metchosin, the City of Colwood, the Town of View Royal, the District of Highlands, and the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area of the Capital Regional District (CRD). We are the commercial centre of the West Shore and feature many of the amenities that neighbouring municipal residents seek.
Langford has attracted large retail and wholesale stores, light industrial companies, and dozens of small businesses with our streamlined re-zoning process and ever-growing consumer market.
Langford's population is flourishing, at present, Langford, BC has a population of 35,342 people. Overall, the average population is growing at an average of 4.68% per year over the past 15 years. In the last two census, its population grew by 6,114 people, an average growth rate of 4.18% from 2011 to 2016. Langford is the fastest growing municipality in the CRD.
Business and population growth has allowed our progressive Mayor and Council to invest in community development. Beautifying our city streets and creating more recreation options for our residents, indoor and outdoor, are just a few of the City's public projects made possible by our increased tax base.
Located on the southern end of Vancouver Island, Langford enjoys warm, dry summers, and mild, wet winters with a frost-free season of approximately 202 days. More information about our weather can be found at the Environment Canada website. Langford's spectacular views of West Shore and Victoria, the Juan de Fuca Strait, and Olympic Mountains are visible all year long.
