Abbotsford, BC Best Large Communities:

The City of Abbotsford thinks that it should win the award in recognition of initiatives and programs it has put into place to support our small business community and help them to grow and be more successful in our community. Recognizing the pivotal role our small businesses play in growing a vibrant economy and complete community, we have fostered connections with businesses through organizing events like Business Walks, innovation forums, and one-on-one visits. This has led to resources and solutions that specifically meet the needs of local businesses, such as creating a marketing toolkit, providing information on succession planning, translating resources from English to Punjabi, planning for an upcoming job fair to focus on skilled workers, developing a Taste of Abbotsford Week to highlight local products and businesses, and launching an ag-tech campaign to promote Abbotsford as an ag-tech centre and to attract ag-tech entrepreneurs to the city.
