Abbotsford is a city in the western province of British Columbia. The city’s southern border is the international border between Canada and the United States. This proximity to the U.S. state of Washington means that most real estate in Abbotsford offers southern views of Mount Baker and northern views of B.C.’s Coast Mountains.

In Canada, the city has the third largest proportion of visible minorities, with the Greater Toronto Area and the Greater Vancouver CMA leading this list. More than a quarter (26.1%) of Abbotsford's residents were born outside of Canada.

The largest ethnic group is the Europeans, which includes descendants from Germany, Holland, UK, Ireland and Scandinavia. The next largest ethnic group is South Asians—people from places like India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Almost two-thirds of the population (62%) work in the city. The remaining 38% commute to Mission, Chilliwack, Surrey, Langley or Vancouver. Despite a large commuter population, Abbotsford’s economy is actually quite diverse. The city’s main industries are agriculture, transportation, manufacturing and retail. The city earns the highest dollar per acre, according to the Conference Board of Canada, ahead of other fertile farming areas such as the Niagara Region and the North Okanagan.

For nine years in a row, starting in 2002, the city held the Statistics Canada designation of “Canada’s most generous city.” The award factored in the number of charitable donations the city’s residents made during each calendar year.

Neighbourhoods

There are nine official neighbourhoods in Abbotsford, although locals would probably count more than 20 unofficial communities in this Lower Mainland city.

The most established neighbourhoods, the communities where families tend to settle, include Clearbrook in Central Abbotsford, Glen Mountain in East Abbotsford and Townline in West Abbotsford. Homes for sale in East Abbotsford communities tend to sell quickly, with almost 70% of properties sold selling in less than 10 days. Almost half the property (42%) that sells in West Abbotsford neighbourhoods will sell for above the list price, while Central Abbotsford offers the most affordable house price options, with homes selling, on average, for about $385,000 in 2017.

Part of the reason for Central Abbotsford’s affordability is that large areas within this community contain commercial developments. For multifamily residential including rental units and townhouses, look in the McCallum Road area. One attractive area in Central Abbotsford is the Historic Downtown shopping area and one big attraction is Mill Lake Park.

For purpose-built family-centred subdivisions check out Clearbrook, Blueridge and Townline in West Abbotsford. Most houses for sale are modest to mid-range family homes. There are pockets of executive homes, with higher-end finishes and a bit more space, but there are also pockets of rental apartment buildings and townhouse complexes.

Look at the Sumas Prairie area if you’re interested in land for sale or acreages. There are plenty of farms and acreages with notable landmarks that include: Birchwood Dairy, Eco Dairy and the Sumas Sub Station (which was finally converted into a private residence).

There’s plenty to choose from in Abbotsford. To narrow down your options talk to a local Realtor.

Local Scoop

Abbotsford’s self-proclaimed nickname—City in the Country—says a lot about what you can do here. If you want to dive into the country part of this city check out EcoDairy. The first demonstration farm in Canada, EcoDairy, in partnership with Science World, teaches us about where milk comes from; the kids can even shovel manure if they want to! For a less bovine experience check out Applebarn. As the name suggests you can pick apples but there’s plenty of other activities, too. From a Corn Quest Maze to Bunny Town to hayrides and pony rides to a zip-line and the petting barn. There’s a little bit of country here for everyone. Just keep in mind, Applebarn is seasonal, so check the times before you go.

If you want to tap into the city’s rich immigration history check out the Sikh Gurdwara. It’s the only surviving North American Sikh temple built during Canada’s pioneer days. Now, it’s a symbol of all the hard work the Sikh people accomplished that helped build our nation, as well as a great opportunity to peek inside a Sikh temple.

With all the great, fertile land surrounding the city, it would be a shame to miss out on some of the fruits of the labour. You can either go to Lepp Farm Market, a locally owned retail store that stocks and sells directly from its farm to the customer. Expect to find locally grown corn, cherries from Okanagan Orchard as well as a variety of non-GMO fruits and veggies from local farmers. Better still, Lepp Farm Market provides locally sourced meat and seafood and even a schedule of cooking classes along with suggested recipes. If you’re not looking for lunch or dinner items, but still want to sample the fruits of the land, take an Abby Wine Tour. For as little as $25 per person, the Phantom Party Bus will take you to local wineries and then deliver you safely back home.

If you’re hungry, check out Duft & Co. Bakehouse. Fresh, homemade cinnamon buns, almond croissants, bread pudding and a variety of other delectable treats are lovingly made in this privately owned artisanal bakery. Located right in the heart of the city’s historical downtown, it’s the perfect mid-day stop. Another option is to visit the Tanglebank Gardens & Brambles Bistro. Tanglebank is a boutique nursery that offers even the most eclectic gardeners smart, elegant options. The Bistro offers a field-to-table seasonal menu.

On rainy days take the kids to Play Abby. Play Abby is an indoor playground and climbing facility with separate areas for toddlers and older kids. There’s also Laser Tag for the tweens in your family. You can also check out the Abbotsford Recreation Centre. The public facility has a 25-metre swimming pool, along with hot tub, sauna and tots pool; it has indoor and outdoor tracks as well as a 10,000 square-foot weight room and, in the winter, an Olympic size ice rink.
