Ladner was created as a fishing village on the banks of the Fraser River. It is a part of the Municipality of Delta, British Columbia, Canada, and a suburb of Vancouver.
Named for Thomas and William Ladner, who came to the area in 1868 and began large farming and fishing operations, it developed as a centre for these operations. The ferry at Captain’s Cove allowed for access across the river to Richmond, British Columbia. The George Massey Tunnel provided a permanent connection in 1959.
Ladner and its suburban neighbour to the south, Tsawwassen, make up the unofficial region known as “South Delta”. (Credit Wikipedia)
Today, Ladner is increasing in its popularity, attracting many outside visitors with local events such as May Days and The Ladner Market. Ladner is also one of the safest communities in the area. Golfing, parks, bird sanctuary, local farm markets, water marina, shopping, Ladner leisure centre (which is home to the Vancouver Giants hockey team), and the Tsawwassen Mills mall, are some of the reasons people choose to relocate to Ladner.
