The City of Langley is a dynamic urban centre located about 45 kilometres east of Vancouver with a population of 26,000. It is adjacent to the historic suburb of Cloverdale and is surrounded on the north, east and south by the Township of Langley (pop. 104,00) in the agriculture-rich Fraser Valley.
Agritourism is one of Langley’s major economic drivers considered a flourishing wine and culinary destination. From fresh produce and preserves to award-winning grape vintages, agritourists can pick berries and visit orchards, or experience life on a working dairy farm. Local wineries offer vineyard tours, too, to help promote the art of winemaking. Additionally, the Township of Langley is considered the horse capital of BC with approximately $50 million contributed annually to its booming equine industry.
In an Ipsos Community Survey, residents expressed what they liked most about the City of Langley, which included its central location, proximity to amenities, lush green spaces, community spirit, and peaceful neighbourhoods. Home to six established residential neighbourhoods, high-density residential development, and a revitalized pedestrian-oriented downtown, Langley recognizes the long-term, positive impact of redeveloping underutilized land and revitalizing its downtown core, and as a result, created a Downtown Master Plan to guide redevelopment into 2029. The award-winning plan will encourage investment and act as a catalyst for economic activity.
People reside in Langley for the high standard of lifestyle and the low cost of living; it’s significantly lower than downtown Vancouver. Office space, land, and housing costs are considerably lower than other cities in the Lower Mainland and housing is about 58% less than Vancouver while retail space is about seven times lower. Langley also boasts the largest square footage in commercial retail outside of Vancouver, from big box stores to specialty shops and boutiques.
Many businesses and developers have turned to Langley for easy access to affluent markets and a higher return on investment. Langley’s history as a major hub of trade, transportation and commerce is reflected in the city’s current booming economy.
A major contributor to the economy is Langley’s world-class educational system, which produces an abundance of talented and skilled workers. The Ministry of Education’s Provincial Review team have placed Langley as one of BC’s “highest performing” areas. A broad spectrum of post secondary institutions including Kwantlen Polytechnic University, the globally recognized Langley Community Music School, and Trinity Western University in the surrounding township, among others, contribute to the educational demographic.
The number of jobs in Langley exceeds the size of its resident labour force and the City enjoys one of the highest ratios of jobs to population in the entire Metro Vancouver region. The City actively works to keep and improve their stimulating business climate, which was recently acknowledged when Langley won the BCSmall Business Roundtable’s “Open for Business Award” for being one of the most business-friendly communities in the province. Small business is valued in Langley, and the City is particularly invested in promoting its growth and success; in 2013 Langley was given the NAIOP Most Improved Municipality Award. A testament to the award, Langley endeavours to place a strong emphasis on infrastructure development so it can continue to thrive in all major industry sectors.
