British Columbia will provide Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) with $1.25 million apiece to begin development of a system of inter-regional trails, river-based infrastructure and heritage features through the Lower Fraser River corridor, the provincial government announced this week.

Experience the Fraser, a recreation and cultural tourism partnership, extends from Hope to the Strait of Georgia. The Province, Metro Vancouver, FVRD and Trails BC will partner with communities and First Nations to establish trail routes and utilize the natural heritage and infrastructure to develop integrated land and water-based recreation and cultural heritage opportunities along the Lower Fraser River to facilitate tourism and active, healthy living.

The partnership will also celebrate the Lower Fraser River wildlife, communities, people and their stories through cultural events, festivals, theatre and the arts.
