District of Kent

Only 1.5 hours east of Vancouver amid the breathtaking natural splendour of the eastern Fraser Valley, the District of Kent is one of the British Columbia’s fastest-growing areas. With the majority of residents between the ages of 30 and 65, the District of Kent’s active population boasts a low unemployment rate and family income levels that exceed the provincial average. The current population of Agassiz has grown 19.5% since 2006, to just over 6,000 (compared to over 83,000 in nearby Chilliwack). In a recent survey, 97% of residents said Agassiz offers a high quality of life and an active lifestyle, proven by the recent expansion and opening of the new Community Recreation and Culture Centre.
