About Abbotsford

Known as a "City in the Country", Abbotsford has British Columbia's richest agricultural lands, family-friendly hospitality, and sophisticated urban amenities.  It's also a year-round destination packed with outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and golf.

Abbotsford (pop. 135,000) is located on the flatlands between the Coast and Cascade mountain ranges, lies in the heart of the Fraser Valley, 68km east of Vancouver and 5km from the US border.  Hwy 1 connects the community east and west and its airport has put Abbotsford on the international map.

Home of the Abbotsford International Airshow, this city is also known as the #BerryCapital and is also committed sport host, having staged the 2004 BC Summer Games, the 2002 BC Disability Games, and the 2006 BC Seniors Games.
