Poised for growth, open for business
The Township of Langley is on the move. As one of the fastest growing municipalities in Metro Vancouver, it is the ideal place to do business, evidenced by its transformation into one of the largest business centres in the Lower Mainland, hosting regional branches of major banking institutions and international legal and accounting firms.

Situated on the traditional territories of the Kwantlen, Katzie, Matsqui and Semiahmoo First Nations, the Township supports some 7,000 businesses with an expanding population projected to double by 2040. As an economic powerhouse in British Columbia, the local economy features numerous anchored sectors, a skilled labour force, an array of leading training and education facilities, and a fully integrated transportation network inclusive of road, rail, port and airport infrastructure. Capitalizing on its prime location along the Trans-Canada Highway and direct trade access opportunities into the United States through a commercial border crossing, the ability to successfully grow a business in the Township is clear.
Diversity is the cornerstone of the Township’s rapid and successful growth. Sectors anchored in the Township include aerospace, agriculture, creative/film, manufacturing, professional services, retail, sport hosting, tourism, transportation and warehousing.
