Welcome to Abbotsford BC
Our City in the Country!
Abbotsford is a wonderful corner of the world in which to live and work.
We enjoy a mild climate with spectacular views of mountains to the north, east and south of us. We hike along the Fraser River or fish in the river or one of its many tributaries.
We ski at Hemlock Valley or Mt. Baker.
We participate in sports in one of the many parks and recreational facilities. We have terrific schools,and numerous family-oriented events such as Berry Festival, Agrifair and our world-famous airshow.
We're only 45 minutes from Vancouver and two hours from Seatle by car, and we have daily flights to Canadian cities in BC, the Prairie provinces and Toronto.
Abbotsford was built on a strong agriculture base, and continues to thrive as a city in the country with more than $315 million in gross farm receipts annually.
In addition, Abbotsford enjoys an economy based on devised businesses such as food processing, the aerospace industry, manufacturing, education, finance and retail services. A city large enough to do business in, we are ideally positioned minutes from the border, with access to freeway and rail routes.
