Abbotsford Has A Ready and Able Workforce

A few fun facts:

  • Over half the population has a post-secondary certificate, diploma or degree.
  • The median age of Abbotsford’s population is below the BC average at 37.9 years old.
  • Over half of BC’s workforce works in knowledge-based or trade-related industries, and 60 % of this workforce is under 44 years of age.

Developing a work force strategy is on our radar. If you are interested in joining our Advisory Group, please contact us at 604.864.5586.
