Brewery Brings Jobs, Excitement and Opportunity

Molson Coors Canada officially broke ground for its modern Fraser Valley brewery. Located in Chilliwack, British Columbia, the new brewery will play a critical role in the company’s supply chain as the western Canadian brewing and distribution centre for beer, cider and specialty products. Senior executives from Molson Coors Canada, along with Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz and provincial cabinet Minister Rich Coleman, were on hand to celebrate this important milestone.

Frederic Landtmeters, the President and CEO of Molson Coors Canada, announced that the $200-million facility is expected to generate over 1,000 jobs during construction, and around 100 employees will be hired when the brewery is operational. Production is expected to begin in early 2019.

“With Molson’s 230 year brewing legacy along the shores of the St. Lawrence River in Montreal, and Coors brewing for 144 years at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, it’s fitting for Molson Coors to break ground on a new brewery at the foot of the Cascade Mountains in the Fraser Valley.” – Molson Coors Canada President and CEO, Frederic Landtmeters

The new brewery will be ideally located along the Trans-Canada Highway at Vedder Road in Chilliwack. It will serve as the Molson Coors western Canadian brewery with perfect positioning for potential supply to international markets given the close proximity to the port of Vancouver.

Mayor Sharon Gaetz shared her excitement about welcoming Molson Coors to the community and about the partnership Chilliwack and Molson Coors Canada will develop as the Fraser Valley Brewery’s future home.

“We are delighted that Molson Coors Canada is breaking ground in Chillwack. The construction of their brewery will immediately infuse our community with new construction jobs and we look forward to the bustle of activity that will surround the creation of the brewery. This certainly demonstrates that Chilliwack is open for business” – Mayor Sharon Gaetz of Chilliwack British Columbia

“With over 50 years of brewing history in British Columbia, Molson Coors Canada has been warmly welcomed by the community of Chilliwack,” added Landtmeters. “We are excited about the wonderful opportunity for our employees and their families to make Chilliwack their home.”
