The municipality was incorporated in Fort Langley in 1873, and is known as the “Birthplace of BC.” A community unlike any other, the Township of Langley is a place where the rich heritage of the past is combined with a vibrant vision for the future. Rural beauty is complemented by an energetic urban atmosphere. The municipality has a land mass of 316 square kilometres (122 square miles), and a population of over 126,000.
