Culture Strategy

Culture programs, services and resources are essential to a vibrant and healthy community. Culture builds civic pride, celebrates diversity, shapes a City’s health and identity, and attracts talent and investment for the City to grow and prosper. Culture brings people together, creates conversations, and helps us learn from one another.

The Culture Strategy will build on previous City plans, strategies and policies and will provide a vision and an action plan for strengthening culture delivery and services in Abbotsford.

We want to hear from you: What does Culture mean to you and what do you want Culture in Abbotsford to look like over the next 5-15 years?

The City is currently hosting information sessions and surveys to hear what you have to say! Take the online Survey and RSVP for the upcoming workshops. You can also subscribe to this page to stay informed about upcoming opportunities for feedback.
