Dates of existence


The Fort Langley and District Board of Trade was a non-profit organization of persons from Fort Langley, Walnut Grove, Willoughby, Glen Valley, and Port Kells, that was interested in promoting economic development and presenting public policy concerns to the government. The Board had its origins in 1910; after a period of inactivity, it was revived in 1947 and remained active until 1965, when the area came under the representation of the North Langley Chamber of Commerce. The Board was particularly active in promoting good transportation access to the area via highway, rail, and ferry; dredging and dyking for flood control; mosquito control programs; and tourism, as well as forging beneficial economic and co-operative links with other organizations.
