About Ladner, BC
Situated on the traditional territory of the Musqueam and Tsawwassen First Nations, Ladner is located to the south of Richmond, across the Fraser River, and a mere 20-minute drive from Vancouver International Airport. When you’re in Ladner, you will find yourself bound by the Fraser River to the north, the city of North Delta to the east, the municipality of Tsawwassen to your south, and the Strait of Georgia to your west, which the great Fraser River empties into.
Ladner first began as a simple wharf, constructed in 1873 by farmers who needed to transport their goods to markets in urban centres.

The beautiful views from this charming community consist of pastoral pastures utilized by farmers, weathered boathouses and fishing boats on the waters of the Fraser River, and the distant mountains along the North Shore.
