About the Order of Abbotsford

The Order of Abbotsford represents the highest form of recognition the City can extend to its residents. The Order of Abbotsford is bestowed upon individuals who have given a particularly high level of long-term service and contribution to the City; and have brought distinction to themselves and the City by outstanding achievements in a variety of areas, including but not limited to: culture, public or community service, the environment, heritage conservation and sports.

Nominations can be made by any individual, group or organization. The Civic Recognition Advisory Committee evaluates all nominations and makes recommendations to Council, which are considered once annually at a Special (Closed) meeting of Council. Nominations for acts of bravery are not eligible for the Order of Abbotsford.

Recipients of the Order of Abbotsford are recognized annually during the City’s Canada Day Celebrations and during the Presentation section of the Regular Meeting of Council agenda, or at another event which has been organized for this purpose.
