Another Great Reason to Move to Langley, BC
We’ve always known Langley is a fabulous place to call home. With scenic mountain views, the great Fraser River, ample gorgeous BC countryside, and only 40 minutes out of downtown Vancouver, Langley draws a lot of new residents every year. Many of our clients have chosen Langley to call home!
Langley is “the fastest growing municipality in the Metro Vancouver area with a population projected to double from its current 121,727 by the year 2040. The average annual household income is $120,000 and the median age is a youthful 40” – reported in this BC Business article.
Fun fact – Langley is actually made up of 2 separate municipalities: Langley Township which is the larger of the 2 and encircles Langley City. There has been talk of amalgamation for years but we’ll save that conversation for another day. The Langley Events Centre located on the main thoroughfare of 200 Street, is literally the centre of town and hosts many of the city’s main events as well as it is the official home of the Vancouver Giants Hockey Team!
Langley now has been ranked amongst the Top 7 Intelligent Communities for 2021 by the International Intelligent Community Forum (ICF).
Here’s What that Means:
According to ICF “The Top7 represent models of economic and social transformation in the 21st Century. They are not the most advanced technology centres, the most wired cities or the fastest growing economies in the world. Instead, each exemplifies best practices in broadband deployment and use, workforce development, innovation, digital inclusion and advocacy that offer lessons to regions, cities, towns and villages around the world. They are charting new paths to lasting prosperity for their citizens, businesses and institutions.”
And as Langley continues to attract more and more residents, it’s vitally important that the municipality collects smart data to aid in smart planning for an ever expanding community. If you want to engage with the municipality you can learn more at The Township of Langley and Langley City.
