Chilliwack is the 7th largest agglomeration in British Columbia, which means it’s the city with one of the highest population density and infrastructure in the area. It’s home to more than 84,000 residents, as well as the seat of the Fraser Valley Regional District.

Natives are believed to be the Stó:lō people, better known as the Indian river people. Their tracks go back as far as 10,000 years ago and it’s believed they lived here until the first contact with the Europeans.

The area lived its great boom when more than 40,000 gold miners came to the area in search of gold in the many goldfields of Chilliwack. This caused many farmhouses to rise beside the river by the 1860s, and the city became a township by 1873. After the commercial area of the town moved to the south, a new area called Centreville was created.  This was later renamed to Chilliwack and in 1908 became the City of Chilliwack. These two areas existed separately until 1980, when they merged into the District of Chilliwack, and later in 1999 became the City of Chilliwack we know today.  

Chilliwack has a relatively mild climate, with rare cases of extremes, both in summer and in winter. There can be occasional snowfalls, but they’re mostly on the surrounding mountains and usually last around 2 weeks. Although located amidst mountains, Chilliwack’s air quality is amongst the best in Canada. In fact, Canada is in the top 3 countries according to air quality, which means Chilliwack has one of the best air qualities in the world!

Although famous for its corn, Chilliwack’s main economic industry is actually the retail and service industry, followed by manufacturing and construction when we look at the GDP.

Chilliwack’s housing market offers homes for everyone’s taste and budget. Affordable residential detached houses can be found in the area of Chilliwack W Young-Well, with house prices starting from $100,000 and moving up to $400,000.

Lower residential property taxes and good quality of life is what draws people to Chilliwack. Chilliwack is a town comprising of several villages and communities, most of them suburban with residential properties.
