In-person City Hall services re-opening at temporary location


In-person Abbotsford City Hall services are re-opening following a fire on July 5. The fire impacted the first floor and services are moving temporarily to the old courthouse at 32203 South Fraser Way. 

Starting today, the following in-person services will be available at the old courthouse:

  • Building and plumbing permits application and pick-up;
  • Revised drawing and documentation drop off;
  • Occupant load calculations for Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch applications; 
  • Provisional occupancy requests;
  • Documentation meetings for building occupancy; and
  • General building permit inquiries.

Cashier services continue to be provided at City Hall and will move to the old courthouse when a new temporary space is ready sometime this week.  Drawing record requests, such as microfiche are currently unavailable but will also be set-up at the old courthouse in the coming week, along with business licences. At this time, business licence inquiries can be made to 604-864-5525 or via email
