A BRIEF HISTORY AND HELPFUL CONTACT INFORMATION FOR ABBOTSFORD, BRITISH COLUMBIA

In 1995 the District of Matsqui, Abbotsford and the Village of Clearbrook amalgamated to create the new
City of Abbotsford. Abbotsford is surrounded by the Fraser River to the north, the American border to
the south, Langley to the west and Chilliwack to the east.
Abbotsford is approximately 70 km southeast of downtown Vancouver, by means of the Trans-Canada
Highway #1 or the Fraser Highway #1A. Situated in the Lower Fraser Valley, Abbotsford is one of the
most productive agricultural areas in British Columbia.
The population of Abbotsford numbers approximately 123,864.

HISTORY
After gold was discovered in the Fraser River the British sent Royal Engineers to survey the area. John
Cunningham Maclure purchased 160 acres in 1889, which would eventually become the village of
Abbotsford. He later sold the land to his son who in turn sold it to Robert Ward. Ward filed for town
site subdivision in 1891. Abbotsford was named after a friend of the Maclure family, Harry Abbott.
Abbott was the Western Superintendent of the C.P.R.
When the C.P.R. spur line reached Abbotsford the area opened up economically. May saw mills were
built between 1890-1919. The establishment of the Abbotsford Lumber Company by the Tretheway
Family helped the development of Abbotsford in every way.

LIFE IN ABBOTSFORD
Abbotsford is the commercial and regional hub for the Fraser Valley. The economy of Abbotsford is
based on agriculture, transportation, precision manufacturing and retail. In recent years, because of the
beautiful surroundings tourism is becoming an important component in the economy.
