information for helping you move to or within Ladner.

We hope you will find the following information useful.

The Corporation of Delta is comprised of three communities Ladner, North Delta and Lander. Ladner
is the oldest of the communities and is situated on the banks of the Fraser River. Ladner is located
along Highway #17, approximately 27 km south of Vancouver.

The population of the Corporation of Delta numbers approximately 102,939. The population of Delta
numbers approximately 20,000.

YESTERDAY AND TODAY

Founded in 1882 the community of Ladner was named after Thomas and William Ladner, two brothers who
initiated the beginning of the community of Delta. Ladner’s Landing, as it was first called, was
the hub of a thriving fishing and farming community. It maintained its status as an important
canning centre on the Fraser River, an industry which employed mainly Natives and Chinese.

From its peak during the 1900’s the canning industry rapidly declined, partly due to heavy silting
caused by the Fraser River Floods in 1891 and 1895. This led to the dyking and drainage project,
which resulted in a largely expanded agricultural industry. During this time the fishing industry
also thrived.

Today, Ladner’s agricultural and fishing industries are a continuing tradition. Even to this day
Ladner is the administrative centre for Delta. Many turn-of-the-century buildings are still in use
for various purposes. One of the earlier municipal halls is now Delta’s museum.
