Population & Trade Market

Langley City has a population of approximately 28,000 people within an area of 10km2, making us one of the densest municipalities in Metro Vancouver. Despite our small size, Langley City's key location and robust employment base has made us a formally-identified Regional City Centre within Metro Vancouver's Regional Growth Strategy. This gives us an outsized role as a regional commercial centre serving a broader trading population of over 275,000 people in nearby areas including the Township of Langley, Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Cloverdale, and South Surrey. This collective area represents a $3.84 billion trade market with an average household income of about $95,000 – higher than the BC average.

Langley City is located near the boundary of the Metro Vancouver Regional District, which has a population of about 2.5 million, and the Fraser Valley Regional District, which has a population of about 300,000, for a combined 2.8 million people. With both these regions' populations growing at a steady 1.3% per year, business opportunities in Langley City will benefit from both local conditions as well as regional factors.
