“We are dealing with an unprecedented situation that is impacting us all, and the health and safety of our residents and staff is of the utmost importance,” said Township of Langley Mayor Jack Froese. “How we respond in the days and weeks ahead, both individually and as a community, will be important.”

The Township of Langley is staying up to date on information and orders from several levels of government, the Fraser Health Authority, Emergency Management BC, and other health authorities.

In keeping with the order of the Provincial Health Officer prohibiting gatherings of more than 50 people, all other non-essential gatherings have been cancelled by the Township, which will continue to take direction from health authorities on further closures and cancellations.

  • Legislatively required meetings, health and safety meetings, and operational meetings will still be held to ensure community safety and operational continuity.
  • Council meetings will also be proceeding at this time, but social distancing will be enforced. Attendance in the Council chambers will be limited to 50 people, with measures put in place to ensure separation between audience members.
  • The public is encouraged to stay home and livestream Council proceedings at, rather than attend meetings in person.
  • Anyone wanting to appear as a delegation or make a presentation to Council is asked to provide their information via email, to assist in managing upcoming Council meetings, as content will be limited to essential priority items.

“By continuing to work together and supporting each other, we will strive to keep our community healthy and overcome this,” Mayor Froese said.
