Our Story

The who's and what's involved in Tourism Langley's organization.

In 2006, the City of Langley and the Township of Langley embarked upon a joint tourism planning initiative.

Through Tourism B.C.’s Community Tourism Foundations program, which provides resources to assist communities in developing a comprehensive tourism plan, the initiative began. Tourism B.C. oversaw the planning process and the project that included the guidance and assistance of a working group comprising of 18 representatives from the communities, including the municipalities, accommodation properties, attractions, the Chamber of Commerce, other tourism-related businesses, and the regional tourism association.  The Langley Tourism Plan was completed in September, 2006, and Tourism Langley officially opened their doors January 1, 2008.

Tourism Langley is a Destination Management Organization (D.M.O.), and not-for-profit society, governed by an independent Board of Directors who is mandated to deliver effective marketing strategies that will generate increased visitation, extended stays, more revenues and increased daily expenditures for businesses in the Township of Langley.
