City of Abbotsford

Abbotsford is the largest city (by area) in British Columbia, consisting of 145 square miles it is the 5th largest municipality of B.C. It is also the 3rd most ethnically diverse city in Canada. The estimated population is 143,000 with an approximate 62% of the residents working here, and holds a 6.4% unemployment rate. The main industries are agriculture, transportation, manufacturing and retail. The top industries of occupation are Industrial, Electrical and Construction; Transport and heavy equipment operations and maintenance; and Service support and other service occupations.

Abbotsford has a few nicknames, “City in The Country”, “Raspberry Capital of Canada”, and “Sport Town” because of the many indoor and outdoor fields.  It was also named Canada’s Most Generous City, in terms of charitable donations for 9 years straight.

The city is the home base for the Abbotsford Heat; farm system team affiliated with the NHL Calgary Flames. With being close to both the BC Interior and Vancouver, Abbotsford hosts a majority of sporting events, consumer events and commercial trade shows. Home to a recognized International Airport, the city hosts the Abbotsford International Airshow each year. In addition, home to the Tradex and The University of The Fraser Valley. Also with us being in close proximity to two US border crossings, one of which is 24 hours, makes day trips and shopping excursions across the line super easy.

With all that said, Abbotsford is one of the best places to be, a perfect happy medium between the everyday city life, and the zen tranquil laid back country living.
