We asked residents in Chilliwack "What is the BEST thing about living in Chilliwack?".
Here are some real voices of Chilliwackers!
No.1 is people. Chilliwack has the BEST people. They are friendly and helpful. They think of other people. They are just different. Chilliwack people still have the small town attitude that helping their neighbors, and saying hi and smiling and being friendly!

Chilliwack has always been home for me. I was born here. My mother was born here. There is a sense of community that I would not be having in anywhere else. I did live in Vancouver for about 10 years, but coming back here to raise a family. There is a sense of connection. And to the people around me here, in downtown Chilliwack are really important to me. These are the people, mom and pop’s business, You know you open the door in the morning and say good morning. Maybe there is a closeness connection between people that you wouldn’t have in city living. There is a sense of being close to the city; being able to go to Vancouver within an hour, but also even from downtown in Chilliwack, 5 minutes drive and can fell really world. The mix of agriculture, recreation and wildness. It’s really amazing. It’s beautiful, the mountains, the lake, the river.

The best thing living in Chilliwack is so connected to the outdoors. There is so much out there to enjoy, and it’s so easy to get out and enjoy it. I love all the mountains, rivers, the trails both on the mountains, Rotary trails. It’s very accessible to everyone who live here. I just think it’s the best. Golfers, horse-back riders, trail runners there is something for everybody.
