A mighty river, stunning canyon, and fertile valley provide both nourishment and fun.
Located in the lower mainland, just beyond Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley is home to fertile foodlands nestled in the dramatic landscape of the Fraser River. The river and surrounding valley are a rich source of food, as well as natural beauty. Outside the cities of Mission, Abbotsford, and Chilliwack, the region is mostly rural and is primarily a place for farming, forestry, and outdoor activities. The valley and river in particular have been an important part of trade, transportation, and food for centuries of Indigenous people.
