History [ edit ]
In 1896, the township was opened up for settlement. Settlers arrived first by boat on the Wabi Creek and later on via the North Dymond and Harley Road (since 1937 known as Highway 11). It was incorporated in 1904.
Initially the land was covered with spruce, tamarack, cedar, and poplar, that supported a thriving lumber industry. Having been cleared of most forests, Harley's main economic activity shifted to agriculture.
