Chilliwack

Located 100 kilometres east of Vancouver, Chilliwack’s natural surroundings, rural setting and thriving agricultural, commercial and industrial economy have drawn many to its family-oriented neighborhoods. Its mountains, lakes and rivers provide beautiful settings for many outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking, camping, boating, kayaking and golfing. Bridal Veil Falls, located at the base of Mount Cheam, cascades almost 400 feet and claims the distinction of being the sixth-highest waterfall in Canada. The area is also home to thriving First Nations communities.
