A BRIEF HISTORY AND HELPFUL CONTACT INFORMATION FOR DELTA, BRITISH COLUMBIA

The Corporation of Delta is comprised of Tsawwassen, Ladner and North Delta. Delta is located in the
southern portion of Greater Vancouver, on Highways #91 and #10, approximately 27 km south of
downtown Vancouver. The area is bounded by the Fraser River to the north, Boundary Bay (the
waterway between US and Canada.) to the south, Surrey to the east and the Strait of Georgia to the west.
The population of Delta numbers approximately 102,939.

HISTORY
Early European explorers encountered Coast Salish First Nations in summer fishing villages located from
North Delta to the coast and on the shores of the Fraser River. These settlers relied on salmon runs in the
Fraser River and harvested the wealth of shellfish, animal life and berry bogs on the flood plains.
This area was not explored further (due to flooding) until it was sighted by a group of Hudson’s Bay
Company men in 1822. Delta’s first European settlers were farmers who cleared land on Fraser River
shores in North Delta in 1859. In 1868 Thomas and William Ladner each claimed 160 acres for farming
adjacent to the Chilukthan Slough. This waterway was used for access between farms and the steamship
dock at Ladner’s Landing in a time of no roads. Ladner’s Landing became known as the most important
canning centre on the Fraser River. From its peak in 1900 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
With the rich soil and abundant water supply, agriculture plays a vital role in Delta’s economy. Dairy
farming as well as growing cranberries, blueberries, beans, peas and corn are all popular in the Delta
region.

ATTRACTIONS
Delta Museum and Archives – The museum offers programs and exhibits that trace the history of the
surrounding area.
Annual Events – Delta is host to numerous annual festivities including North Delta Family Day and
Fraser River Festival in June, Ladner Pioneer Day in May and Tsawwassen Sun Festival in August.
Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary – This park is 750 acres of protected, managed marshland. It is a
migratory spot for wild birds, with over 230 species having been identified.
