Delta, British Columbia

Located south of Richmond, Delta is mainly an agricultural community with a land area of 364 square kilometers. Founded by a Spanish explorer in 1791, and developed by European settlers in 1860, fishing and farming helped the settlement to grow quickly. The isolated community was incorporated in 1879, but it wasn't until the opening of the George Massey Tunnel in 1959 and the rerouting of Highway 99 in 1960 that Delta saw rapid growth. The Delta region is known for its multicultural diversity; 23 percent of the local population are minorities, including First Nations of the Tsawwassen Indian Reserve, Chinese Canadians and other South Asian cultures
