Last updated: March 26, 2020

To help navigate the quickly evolving COVID-19 situation, Tourism Abbotsford is working closely with local and regional industry partners, including Destination British Columbia and the Tourism Industry Association of BC. To assist with providing you updates on new information, we have compiled some useful resources and information below. We encourage you to visit the Public Health Authority of Canada’s (PHAC) website for the most accurate and up-to-date information on the COVID-19 situation.

Destination BC has created a one stop shop of information on government response plans and packages for workers and businesses, travel advisories, airport screening measures, and tips for visitors seeking medical attention:

Visitor Services –  Our Visitor Centre on Delair Rd. is currently closed, as well as our visitor services kiosk at the Abbotsford Airport. We encourage you to ask your questions by phone at 604.859.1721, by using our chat tool found on our website here, or by connecting with us on social media. These channels aren’t monitored 24 hrs a day, but we will respond in a timely manner.
