UFV to create new heavy-mechanical and farm-technology centre

April 3, 2017

The University of the Fraser Valley has announced that it will build $6.5M-worth of teaching and shop space that will be used to accommodate UFV students in the heavy-mechanical foundation and apprentice programs at the Canada Education Park in Chilliwack. Part of the funding will also support the purchase of trades equipment. The British Columbia government will provide $5.5M to the project, with UFV providing the remaining $1M. “The new mechanical and farm-technology centre will allow students to be able to complete their entire studies and apprenticeships all in one location and in their home community,” said UFV President Mark Evered.
