Nestled in the beautiful Fraser Valley just east of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) is a fully accredited, public university that enrolls more than 14,000 students per year. UFV has campuses in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, and Mission, with regional centres in Hope and Agassiz, and a growing presence in Chandigarh, India. In Fall 2007, we began development of a beautiful new 80-acre campus in the Canada Education Park along the historic Vedder River in Chilliwack.

The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) enrolls more than 10,000 students per year and is larger than half the universities in Canada. More than 1,800 students graduate each year. UFV started out as Fraser Valley College (FVC) in 1974, became the University College of the Fraser Valley (UCFV) in 1991, and gained university status in 2008. Our roots, however, go much further back.

UFV’s Mission campus lies on a hillside nestled among the southern coastal mountains and overlooks the Fraser River valley.
