Lovers of the great outdoors will be happy to find that Abbotsford serves as the perfect base due to its proximity to both the mountains and the ocean. Within a few hours’ drive, you can either sunbathe on one of the many beaches of the Pacific or do some hiking in the magnificent Cascade Mountains. The city’s devotion to a healthy community is further emphasized by the more than 100 kilometers of nature trails, perfect for hiking, running and cycling. A large number of sports fields and courts can also be found in the city, along with a 25,000-square-foot skate park and 70 playgrounds.
Abbotsford’s oceanic climate results in typically short, warm and dry summers, with few days reaching a temperature of more than 30°C. The average temperature in July and August is a comfortable 24°C. The coolest months are December and January, but temperatures rarely dip below freezing. On average the last frost each spring falls around April 7. Abbotsford is actually a wetter city than Vancouver — the fourth dampest of 100 Canadian cities with approximately 1507 mm of rainfall annually.
Abbotsford is one of the top choices for families when it comes to relocating to the Fraser Valley region. One of the main reasons for this is its prime education system, offering 46 public schools, 4 private schools as well as 8 post-secondary institutions. The University of the Fraser Valley is one of the biggest university colleges in the country and has numerous campuses here. The tight-knit community of Abbotsford puts an emphasis on a vibrant social scene for residents of all ages with special attention given to families with children.
Like the rest of the Fraser Valley region, Abbotsford’s cost of living is substantially lower than Greater Vancouver’s. Abbotsford’s housing prices are roughly half of that in Vancouver, and families can live a much better lifestyle at a lower income.
The Living Wage for Families campaign has calculated the basic hourly wage required for a family of four with both parents working full time, year round in Abbotsford to be $17.40/hour each or $72,384 combined annually; in Vancouver the living wage has been calculated at $20.91/hour.
The city’s location in the southwestern end of Canada, close to the international border, promises easy access to numerous cities and amenities. Larger cities like Richmond, Burnaby and Vancouver are less than an hour’s drive away and can be easily reached by public transport. Abbotsford International Airport connects the city to other parts of North America through both domestic and international flights.
Since the city is reasonably spread out, owning a car definitely helps with getting around here. Parking is generally free and cheaper than in larger Canadian cities and the plenitude of parking stalls means that finding a vacant spot should not prove to be too difficult.
As you can see, Abbotsford is quite the charmer! Sometimes known as The City in the Country, it is the perfect place to settle down for those in search of tranquility, proximity to nature and a safe place to call home. The city’s idyllic location and cost-effective housing options only add to its appeal. Anyone thinking of moving here should learn all about the ins and outs of daily Abbotsford life and we are positive that the city will reward them in more ways than one.
