Heritage Abbotsford Strategic Plan, 2020 – 2023

Vision: To be the recognized organization for Abbotsford heritage expertise and consultation.
Mission: To collect, record, preserve and share the stories of Abbotsford.



Our work is reflexive. We both advise and consult.


It takes people with different ideas, strengths, interests, and cultural backgrounds to make our organization succeed. We encourage healthy debate and respect differences of opinion.


We are stewards of the stories we tell and the items we preserve. We are responsible to share unbiased facts. The same story can have multiple versions, which gives dimension to our history.


We are honest, open, ethical, and fair. People trust us to adhere to our word.


It takes courage, innovation and adaptation to forge a better future.
