The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) is comprised of the municipalities of Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Hope, Harrison Hot Springs, Kent and Mission. The FVRD is the third most populous regional district, one of 27 throughout the province of British Columbia.
The Fraser Valley has beautiful scenery, countless recreational opportunities, a broad range of services, growing employment opportunities close to home, and housing costs which are more affordable than many other Lower Mainland communities. Combined with the region’s productive farmland, historic rural communities, and many wilderness areas, residents of the Fraser Valley enjoy a high quality of life in one of the most liveable environments in North America.
Work: Agriculture is a significant component of the economy, producing over one-third of all provincial gross farm receipts. The FVRD is home to a variety of exceptional filming locations, including waterfalls, mountain resorts, caves, historical communities and scenic parks. We have hosted a range of productions, from commercials and television series to full-length movies.
Play: The FVRD manages a diverse range of green spaces. Whether you want to show off the spectacular scenery to a visiting relative, spend a day fishing on the Fraser River, host a family picnic, or just enjoy a quiet stroll, you’re sure to find a regional park that will fit the bill.
Culture: First Nations culture, communities and governance in the region are diverse. With 30 bands, numerous urban and rural reserves, and a complex organizational network, the FVRD takes a proactive approach to First Nation relations.
