An accredited public university with a focus on teaching, the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) was established in 1974 (then Fraser Valley College). UFV offers 15 bachelor’s degrees, two master’s degrees, and over 100 certificate, diploma, and post-degree programs in applied and academic areas.
Many of our programs ladder into one another, allowing students to keep their options open by earning a one-year certificate and/or a two-year diploma on the way to completing a full degree.
Current agriculture program offerings include credentials in horticulture, livestock, integrated pest management, berry production, field vegetable production, and milker technician. Students can also earn a Bachelor of Agricultural Science degree with a major in horticulture and, a Bachelor of Business Administration degree for Agriculture Management.
UFV has locations in four Fraser Valley communities, with campuses in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, and Mission; a centre in Hope; and a presence in Chandigarh, India.
In April 2014, a new agricultural facility opened at the Canada Education Park in Chilliwack. The UFV Agriculture Centre features:
- A 783 m2 demonstration barn including livestock area, milking area, poultry area, and swine area.
- A 600 m2 greenhouse featuring a multi-wall polycarbonate construction that provides a strong thermal rating and high energy efficiency.
- Two 225 m2 polyethylene greenhouses.
The UFV Agriculture Centre serves as a hub that supports the Fraser Valley’s thriving agricultural economy through teaching and research.
