Chilliwack, B.C.

The City of Chilliwack is situated in B.C.’s Fraser Valley, about 90 kilometres east of Vancouver, and is home to just over 80,000 residents. While the local economy has been traditionally centred around agriculture, recent development lends it an increasingly urban feel.

Chilliwack offers countless opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts from hiking, white-water rafting and golf to some of the best freshwater fishing spots in B.C.

The Chilliwack-based Valley Huskers of the Canadian Junior Football League, along with the BCHL’s Chiefs are the main draws when it comes to sports in town.

The city is served by two newspapers (the Chilliwack Progress and the Chilliwack Times) as well as two radio stations (89.5 The Drive and Star 98.3).
