For many thousands of years, Delta was home to aboriginal peoples who established summer fishing trips on the banks of the Fraser River .
Much of the area was inhospitable marshland subject to tidal flooding, but Natives settled the upland areas in Tsawwassen and North Delta, and the municipality's archeological sites are among the oldest known in the province. The mouth of the Fraser River was one of the first areas in B.C. to be explored by Europeans looking for the Northwest Passage .
