Where wine country and equestrian excellence meet hometown charm

Located in the heart of the Fraser Valley, Langley is recognized as the valley’s designated wine country and the horse capital of British Columbia. Its seven unique communities have quickly grown into one thriving city offering all the amenities of a major bustling urban centre, all while preserving its hometown country roots.

Langley resides on the traditional, ancestral and unceded shared territories of the qʷɑ:nƛən [Kwantlen], Matsqui [mats-sqwee] and qicəy (Katzie) [kut-zee] First Nations, and is home to the Surrey-Delta Métis Association.

Area Facts


The City of Langley and Township of Langley are two bordering municipalities grown together, east of the city of Surrey and centrally located between the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley economic regions. Located on the south side of the Fraser river with easy access to major highways, and approximately 45 minutes (47 km) from Vancouver’s city centre, Langley also borders Washington state, USA to the south.


The City of Langley alone has a population of only 27,000. Including the Township of Langley and its populous rural suburban neighbourhoods, the entire Langley area is home to nearly 160,000 people. Langley, and its inclusive communities, have the fastest growing population in the Lower Mainland and Greater Vancouver areas.

School & Education

Langley City and the Township of Langley have a number of public and private schools from kindergarten through to grade 12.

Langley is home to two degree-granting institutions, Trinity Western University and Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and a number of continuing education and workplace skills training programs.

Key Industries

Langley is well known for farming, agriculture and food production. While more recently, the industrial and manufacturing sectors are increasingly moving out to the Langley areas from the city. Land development (construction), air transportation, education, film/television, retail and health care are also well-established and thriving industries.

Things To Do

The luxury of being two places (two municipalities) at once is that there are plenty of options from the bustling urban centre to an escape at a tranquil equestrian center. Visit Fort Langley, the Birthplace of British Columbia, explore numerous walking and biking trails throughout the city, visit the Greater Vancouver Zoo, or attend a Vancouver Giant’s game at the Langley Events Centre.
