"A beautiful community in Abbotsford, part of what truly makes Abbotsford the City in the Country." Matsqui stretches north to the Fraser River and includes the fertile area known as the Matsqui Flats. Its name is a First Nations (Halkomelem) word, meaning “stretch of higher ground”, and refers to the fact that the area is a good place to portage a canoe from one body of water to another – a very important geographical feature for early European settlers. In 1995, Matsqui merged with Abbotsford, creating the city as it is known today. There are many trails in among the wetlands, ideal for taking the kids or the family dog for a brisk walk. The trails are home to many species of birds so bring your binoculars! "Matsqui is the largest single community in Abbotsford. "   More information a...

This family friendly neighbourhood is sometimes known as the village in the mountains because of its architecture and its location on top of Sumas Mountain. Here, tall evergreen trees stand along the streets and in the green spaces between developments. Here, you can take a short stroll between developments on several walking trails. Many Auguston residents run, walk, hike and bike on the many man made trails in and around this community.  The Clayburn Creek Park and Trail are practically in your back yard. Mathers Park and Callaghan Park are a great place to take the children out for some playtime. Serious golfers will rejoice in their proximity to the Ledgeview Golf Course. This quiet neighbourhood makes this area a great place to raise a family or to enjoy your “empty nest” years in...

We have really enjoyed a few days of sun in the Lower Mainland over the last week. The days where the sun has come out have been few and far between. My husband is from New Zealand and we lived in Wellington, NZ for almost eight years. One of the biggest differences is how our fellow Canadians will take advantage of each and every sunny day and weekend, as they are few and far between. When you think about it, there may be as little as 8-12 beautiful weekends this year that we can really take advantage of. We love living in Canada and have been back here now since 2005! We live in Abbotsford BC in the heart of the Fraser Valley and we have made so many wonderful connections with friends and family. Friday of last week was such a gorgeous day I just couldn't resist and had to get out in ...

In Downtown Abbotsford there is a small, family owned sandwich shop called "Oneill's Homecooking" that might just change the way you look at the breakfast sandwich if not the idea of the sandwich itself. Oneill's is described by many as one of Abbotsford's best kept secrets; hidden away on Gosling Way, a small side street near Essendene. Due to its top product the "Oneill" breakfast sandwich, it is safe to say that Oneill's won't stay a secret for long. The Sandwich - a delicious, golden homemade sweet potato bun toasted & buttered topped with cooked ham, a fried egg & a slice of cheese - is in short revelatory. One satisfied customer and Abbotsford resident, described it as "The white man's soul food", where the Cascade Newspaper and many happy customers hail it 'the greatest sandwich ...

Buying Abbotsford Tax Sale Properties.... Someone called me last week and asked about properties being sold by City of Abbotsford because of tax deliquency. Here is some basic information for all of you who are curious about tax sales.The City is required by the Local Government Act to sell, at tax sale, all properties for which taxes have not been paid for three years. The Local Government Act gives the Collector authority to sell a property for the "UPSET PRICE", which equals all outstanding taxes + penalties + interest + 5% tax sale costs + Land Title Office fees.Tax sale is conducted every year on the last -- READ MORE >>
