Canby is a community surrounded by rural small towns like Aurora, Molalla and Barlow but isn’t a far jump to the larger cities like Wilsonville and West Linn either. In fact the Canby Ferry gives quick transit across the Willamette River into Wilsonville. Much like the small community of Sandy, Canby has its own transit system. This Canby Area Transit (CAT) unites with Portland’s mass transit systems and Wilsonville’s bus service in a few downtown locations.
Residents of Canby enjoy suburban living and wide open spaces with large housing lots, breathtaking views and plenty of agricultural land. The average home price is low for the Portland Metro area with a median price of $300K. This tight knit community is embraced with a diverse economy. Both big industrial business and small refined nurseries are the money drivers for Canby and the Canby School District uses these resources to its advantage. With an investment in technology and the future, they make sure students are exposed to many career options and learn valuable skills before entering the workforce.
