Experience Abbotsford!

Just a one-hour drive from Vancouver, Abbotsford is one of Canada’s fastest growing cities. It’s an urban center in the Fraser Valley, close to the US border, surrounded by mountains, rivers and lakes, and has majestic Mount Baker in the background.  Students live in an area surrounded by spectaular nature, but are still close enough that they can visit Vancouver on weekends.  The trip to Vancouver City Centre can be as short as 1 hour and 20 minutes, by taking the #66 Express Bus from HighStreet shopping mall to Lougheed Station, and then taking the SkyTrain into the city centre from there.

With our low population of international students (approximately 7% in our highschools), Abbotsford offers a uniquely Canadian study and home stay experience that showcases both urban and rural Canadian life.  Watch our short Abbotsford Video and follow Tourism Abbotsford on Instagram to see what our city has to offer...
