Richmond is a growing dynamic urban centre with a
unique mix of residential, and commercial property, agricultural lands,
industrial parks, waterways and natural areas.
It lies where the River meets the ocean. The shores surrounding
Richmond create an estuary border that provides habitat for fish
and for migrating birds on the Pacific Flyway between
the Arctic and South America.
Richmond has undergone enormous change over the last
several decades, with significant growth in the early
1990's. Today, Richmond is a dynamic, multi-ethnic community.
