Welcome to Canby…
A good place to raise a family, build a business and enjoy life!
GROWING and thriving like the agriculture for which it is known — the community of Canby is nestled in the heart of the Willamette Valley… just beyond the lights of the big city.
Over 150 years ago Canby’s first families recognized the area, known as Baker Prairie, was choice land; perfect for growing crops, families and for growing a community! The fertile soil, majestic forests, and abundant water supply guaranteed this fledgling settlement’s growth into the next century and beyond.
And grow it did. That early farming settlement has matured into a modern-day population of over 17,000. The surrounding area remains prime farm land; contributing to Oregon’s leading agricultural products of Hazelnuts, Berries, Hops, Christmas Trees, Nursery Stock and a cornucopia of others. That rural feeling beckoned families to Canby, turning the city into one of the most desirable communities of both the Portland area, just 25 miles to the north and Salem, just 30 miles to the south with easy access to I-5 and I-205.
