With a history as rich as it's soil and deeply routed in the values of friendship, pride and respect and a rhythm of life that follows a beat set by nature. Abbotsford is a place that people, dreams and families grow.
Nestled in the heart of Fraser Valley, Abbotsford is a singularly spectacular place to live, nature blessed us with mountains, valleys, lakes and rivers. We return the favour by creating some of the most beautiful parks and green spaces in Western Canada.
Our natural setting surrounds us, inspires us, and refreshes us every day.
Our close proximity to Vancouver and the US Border, combined with a highly skilled motivated workforce, make Abbotsford an attractive choice for industries from Aerospace to Organic Produce. From Farms that feed the province to a University that feeds the mind.
Abbotsford is one of the fastest growing communities in Canada, and there's a simple secret to our success. People chose Abbotsford because they have discovered the magical quality of life that exists here. Life, work and leisure, all in perfect balance.
There's an energy that comes from living so close to the land. You can see it in the faces of everyone that lives here. It is a healthy, active community that has produced Olympic Stars and National Champions.
If Canada is a cultural mosaic then Abbotsford is the centre tile. Few cities anywhere can match the diversity you'll find here.
As rich as our soil may be, it's not just fresh produce that flourishes here, our big skys and wide horizons inspire open minds and endless opportunities in business, culture and community.
At the bottom of the Abbotsford code of arms is a simple motto 'One with the strength of Two'. This is the true magic of Abbotsford, where every sense is served, every opportunity explored, where the splendour of nature meets the promise of the future.
Two world’s one City.
