Welcome to Chilliwack
One of the warmest cities in Canada, Chilliwack comprises some of the most varying landscapes. Its namesake is derived from the Halq’eméylem word Ts’elxwéyeqw—which means ‘going back upstream as far as you can go in a canoe’—and reflects the river valley with many streams in which it rests. Minutes away from mountainous terrain, Chilliwack is also well-known for its corn fields, corn mazes and pumpkin patches. Its historic downtown features cobbled alleyways and brick buildings in District 1881, where you’ll find artisan shops, cozy eateries and warmly lit brewpubs.
We respectfully acknowledge that Chilliwack is located on the traditional, ancestral, unceded and shared territories of the Ts’elxwéyeqw and Pelho’lhwx Tribes of Stó:lō-Coast Salish Peoples.
