About Port Moody

The occupants of this region were the Squamish and Musqueam bands of the Coast Salish people. Their ancestors settled in the Lower Mainland for 8,000 years. They used Port Moody to hunt, fish, and gather shellfish. The eastern end of Burrard Inlet has their summer campsites and Indian artifacts.

Non-indigenous people started to settle in the region in the 1800s. Fur traders frequently visited the area. Gold prospectors arrived during the Cariboo Gold Rush in 1858 and the need to come up with a back-door defence for New West emerged. The following year, the Royal Engineers were sent to clear a trail. The trail, later named North Road, would allow the shipment of military supplies and personnel in Burrard Inlet if New West was attacked from the south. No attack happened, but a town started to grow.
Notable changes began in 1886 when Port Moody was named the original Pacific terminus of the transcontinental railroad- later extended to Vancouver. Many new residents occupied the town, and the railroad and harbour provided great opportunities for both light and heavy industries.

Port Moody was incorporated as a city in 1913.
