Our trade area reaches nearly 8,300 persons and situated only 120km from Vancouver and 282km from Kelowna, a 90-minute drive in any direction brings you to a total of 3 million people. Two highways and CP Rail bring millions of visitors to the District of Kent each year. Industry, real estate, services, government, education, tourism, and trade can all be found here with undeveloped land serviced and ready to go.  The District area covers approximately 222 kilometers square of land.

The District of Kent offers a lifestyle like none-other where you may ski, fish, swim, cycle, hike, and golf all in one day for under $50, or visit the area's most popular attractions such as Harrison Hot Springs, Minter Gardens and Bridal Falls Waterslides. The lifestyle of choice is here; the small Upper Fraser Valley community that offers you a lifestyle of vacation, even after work. If you can play cheap, you should also live cheap. Quality at an affordable price, not everything makes sense!

Located in the Upper Fraser Valley, known as Rainbow Country, the District of Kent is not far from excitement.
