The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) is a regional district in British Columbia, Canada. Its headquarters are located in the city of Chilliwack. The FVRD covers an area of 13,361.74 km² (5,159 sq mi). It was created by an amalgamation of the Fraser-Cheam Regional District and Central Fraser Valley Regional District and the portion of the Dewdney-Alouette Regional District from and including the District of Mission eastwards.

The FVRD incorporates roughly the eastern half of the Lower Mainland region of southwestern BC, and is bordered by Whatcom County, Washington to the south, Metro Vancouver to the west, and the Okanagan-Similkameen Regional District to the east. The northern border with the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District and the Thompson-Nicola Regional District falls just south of the towns of Skookumchuck Hot Springs and Lytton, respectively. It also includes unincorporated areas north of the City of Pitt Meadows which were formerly part of the Dewdney-Alouette Regional District but which were not transferred to the Greater Vancouver Regional District when it expanded to take in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge.Currently, the Regional District is engaged in a public dispute over Metro Vancouver's plans to build a garbage incinerator.
