Langley is home to a number of thriving industries, some of which rely on Langley’s massive amount of space. With over 30 automotive dealerships and 5 recreational vehicle dealerships, the city is home to Canada’s first luxury auto mall. Langley’s industrial sector also takes advantage of the area, as it controls 2.86 million square feet of floor space and 20% of the city’s employment. With one side of the city bordering the United States, manufacturing and exporting are streamlined.
On the other hand, the trading population of Langley is made up by over a quarter of a million people, which adds up to nearly $4 billion in the local trade market. Residents of the area make higher than that of the entire province, with an average household income of $95,000.
There are two industries in Langley that thrive but are often overlooked: wine and film. Wine is part of the culture in Langley, since it is part of the Fraser Valley’s wine region. 200 acres of land are owned by 40 wineries, you will never run out of new things to try. While you’re sipping on that wine, you can watch one of the 110 productions that were filmed in 2016 alone, accounting for over 1,000 days of shooting that year. Thousands of Langley residents work on film and television productions in their own backyard.
Langley’s population is growing at a rate 3x faster than Vancouver. With the Skytrain expansion planned for Langley, the area is going to see more and more investment over the coming years. The best time to invest is yesterday, and the second-best time is today.

About Langley, BC
The Township of Langley and the City of Langley, while two separate entities, are often referred to just as “Langley.” Together they are one of the largest communities in Canada and are pivotal to the economy of the Lower Mainland. So pivotal, in fact, that the Skytrain system will be undergoing expansion to increase accessibility to Langley from other areas of the Lower Mainland.
The Township’s swathes of land have allowed it to take advantage of particular industries with demands for space, like automotive dealerships, manufacturing, and agriculture. The sheer amount of land available also allows for a number of suburbs to exist within the Township, making it one of the largest school districts in the province. While the City of Langley is much smaller, it provides that downtown urban experience that some might miss from Vancouver.
There are certainly no questions as to why Langley lawyers at Winright Law are excited to provide legal services residents in this thriving city.
