My Vision for Abbotsford

Abbotsford is a great city. As the hub of the Fraser Valley, it is uniquely positioned for growth and long-term success. Of course, our most important resource is our people — a people who are generous, entrepreneurial and the reason for this city’s success. We are also blessed with a border crossing, a rail line to the US, an international airport, a world-class hospital and cancer centre, and a well-respected university. Abbotsford has all the ingredients necessary for a vibrant city that will attract and retain families for generations. In order to make this happen, we need to plan for the future now. Long-term planning means thinking ahead to what we want Abbotsford to look like 50 or even 100 years from now, and letting this vision for the future help direct the decisions we make today.
