Langley City

to a wide spectrum of people and businesses. Contained within just four square miles, the City consists of established suburban residential neighborhoods with a variety of housing types, a natural wetland of regional significance, parkland exceeding 300 acres, a pedestrian-oriented down- town, big-box retail, a regional shopping center, and one of the most active industrial and serviced commercial land bases in Metro Vancouver. From modest beginnings as a small settlement near Innes Corners, Langley City has grown to a population of 27,000 with a distinct cultural and social identity. Mayor Schaffer states, “We’ve asserted ourselves as an economic center for the Fraser Valley. Our elected officials are visible neighbors, and tax dollars are spent to address issues of local significance, rather than being redirected to another community as is done in amalgamated governments. That’s why there is no aspiration towards amalgamation out here in western Canada, unlike other provinces, such as Ontario. On March 15, 2018 we celebrated our LANGLEY CITY, BRITISH COLUMBIA 63rd birthday as a separate municipality. That may not seem like much in the grand scheme of things but it’s very important to us.We’re proud of our heritage and, most importantly, we’re excited about our future!” CKF Inc. is the largest employer in Langley City. Among its many environmentally-friendly pulp and paper products are Chinet plates, egg cartons (700,000 per year), and coffee trays for Tim Hortons and Starbucks. Another valuable employer, IPEX Inc., manufactures plastic pipes and industrial products for construction utilities. Langley City also thrives in the automotive sales sector, as home to Canada’s first luxury auto mall. The City is pleased to have assisted the Dilawri Group in locating its Mercedes-Benz dealership on Kwantlen First Nation land and securing a 40-year lease - quite a progressive initiative for the Kwantlen First Nation business group. Also in the luxury auto mall is the Open Road Auto Group
