Delta is a city in the province of British Columbia. The city incorporated in 1879 and is considered a part of the larger Greater Vancouver Area, known as the GVA. Its current population is 103,000 residents and there are three distinct communities: Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta. Ladner is the administrative centre but North Delta is the city’s most populous area.

Almost a quarter (23%) of the city’s population are visible minorities with the majority of these residents identifying as South Asian or Chinese.

Prior to European settlement, the Tsawwassen indigenous peoples of the Coast Salish First Nations inhabited the area. Even when the European’s set up their communities, the area remained relatively isolated. That changed in the early 1960s with the completion of the George Massey Tunnel, which linked Delta to Richmond and Vancouver. The re-routing of Highway 99 also helped end the city’s isolation.

A small section of land south of Tsawwassen is actually an isolated piece of the United States. As U.S. and UK officials were tasked with negotiating a settlement in the mid-19th century, they forgot about this small piece of land. As a result, Point Roberts remains a Washington-state community, which is landlocked by the city of Delta, which shares a border with this U.S. land exclaves.

Neighbourhoods

Delta is a relatively small geographical area with three distinct and geographically separate communities.

The largest and most populated community in the city is North Delta. There are approximately 52,000 residents living in this mostly suburban community. There are four neighbourhoods in this mostly middle-class community. Annieville is popular with half the homes recently listing for sale, sold in less than 10 days. The neighbourhoods of Nordel, Scottsdale and Sunshine Hills Woods are also in North Delta. Average home prices in these areas range from $757,000 to $993,000. Many North Delta residents commute to downtown Vancouver or south into Surrey and Langley. The area shares a border with the city of Surrey and it’s home to the largest peat urban bog in North America, known as Burns Bog.

The centre of Delta is Ladner, which holds nine neighbourhoods. Ladner Elementary and Hawthorne are two popular communities as they offer great family homes in areas that are easily accessible. Ten percent of homes in Hawthorne sell for above asking price with the average selling price coming in around $985,000. More homes sell for over asking in Ladner Elementary (35%) but the average price of a sold home is lower at about $680,000.

The two most expensive areas in Delta are located in sunny Tsawwassen. Average sale prices for homes in Pebble Hill are $1.4 million, while average prices for homes in Tsawwassen Central sit around $1.1 million.

Because Delta is spread out geographically, it’s a good idea to talk to a local Realtor. These property specialists can help you narrow down a neighbourhood or property type that fits your lifestyle and budget. If you’re just getting acquainted with the city, spend a weekend checking out open houses in Delta.

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to Delta’s downtown core. Good options include Richmond, New Westminster and Surrey. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or commuter train stations, such as Steveston or Newton. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Burnaby, Langley and Abbotsford are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Commuters

Large sections of Delta are quite hilly so cyclists need to be fit and confident as there aren’t a tonne of dedicated bike lanes. Residents can get around on buses and into neighbouring cities on buses, but there are no rapid transit choices in the city. Those commuting by car will rely on minor highways to get to and from neighbouring municipalities.

Local Scoop

On sunny days, locals head down to Centennial Beach in Tsawwassen. There are on-site change rooms, a seasonal concession stand and a great kids playground. Plus, you can spend the day basking in the sun while lying on the sand or dip your toes into the Boundary Bay waters.

Bird-watchers love the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary. It’s one of 92 federal Migratory Bird Sanctuaries in Canada and offers birds nearly 300 hectares of managed wetlands, natural marshes and low dykes in the heart of the Fraser River Estuary. The protected park offers easy walking trails and a chance to see millions of birds feeding and resting in the area.

Another birding experience is a visit to Orphaned Wildlife (OWL). This nonprofit is dedicated to the survival of raptors and offers 30-minute tours of the facility and its residents. The facility aims to treat and release birds, but some end up having to stay long-term. This gives a chance to see owls, eagles, falcons, hawks and turkey vultures up close and personal.

Locals also love Burns Bog, the “Lungs of the Lower Mainland.” It’s the largest peat bog in North America and offers easy boardwalk walking trails. While dogs are allowed, they must be kept on a leash at all times.

Every July cyclists enjoy the Tour de Delta. More than 200 cyclists participate in this weekend event, where the winner takes home $25,000 in prize money. It’s the richest three-day event in Canadian cycling and, as a result, has attracted big cyclist names in the past, such as Roland Green, Mark McCormack and Claire Hall-Patch.

For shopping check out Tsawwassen Mills. A large indoor shopping centre, this mall has both big box stores as well as speciality stores like Canucks Team Store. The big draw is Bass Pro Shops, Lolé as well as The Children’s Place Outlet Store.
