Located an hour east of Vancouver, Abbotsford borders Mission to the north, Langley to the west, Chilliwack to the east, and Washington state to the south. This sprawling rural “city in the country” is set against stunning views of B.C.’s Coast Mountains and Washington’s Mount Baker.
Abbotsford is home to Canada’s third highest proportion of visible minorities. Immigrants and newcomers of South Asian descent comprise nearly 20 per cent of the population. A high proportion of Abbotsford’s Indo-Canadian community is Sikh.
The city’s economy depends largely on dairy farming and fruit orchards; known as the Raspberry Capital of Canada, Abbotsford earns the highest dollar per acre of agricultural land in the country. With a lower cost of living than Vancouver and its location along B.C.’s Bible Belt, the area attracts residents who uphold traditional values, want a slower pace and enjoy a small town “feel.”
