Chilliwack is a diverse community whos origins date back 10,000 years to the First Nations, Sto:lo, and the European settlers in the late 1800s who arrived in droves to multiple locations throughout British Columbia seeking wealth in the Gold Rush. The land after floods in 1948 was then distinctly changed. Lakes were drained and rivers rerouted to prevent the residents of Chilliwack experiencing such dangers. This unfortunately disrupted the use of the land by the Sto:lo. However, today the rivers around the city have created a thriving industry of agriculture, dairy, farming (hop picking originally) to the current boom in the high-tech industry.
