The AgRefresh planning process is nearing completion!

The AgRefresh Stage 3 Report was released in early October 2021, outlining draft policies, regulations, and recommendations for Abbotsford's farming areas.

Throughout October and early November 2021, agricultural stakeholders, the broader community, and several agencies provided feedback on the draft, with some additional follow-up into January 2022. Read the Stage 3 Engagement Results: Winter 2021-22 (appendices) for a summary of how we engaged, what we heard, and the proposed changes in response to feedback.

AgRefresh bylaws to amend the Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw were given first and second reading by City Council on April 25, 2022, and granted third reading (as amended) following the public hearing held on June 13, 2022.

Next steps involve requesting bylaw approvals from applicable Provincial Ministries, followed by Council consideration of final adoption.
