UFV Five Corners opens in Chilliwack

September 3, 2014

The University of the Fraser Valley has officially opened a new location at Chilliwack’s historic Five Corners. The 7,000-square-foot site includes classroom space, a computer lab, meeting rooms, and offices, and will be used to deliver Continuing Education courses. The facility will also be available for community purposes, customized contract training, and for programming by other UFV departments. The site was donated to the university by the Bank of Montreal; the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation also provided $850,000 and helped manage the renovation project. “This excellent and much-needed new facility is a prime example of what can be achieved when corporate and community partners work together with our university,” said UFV President Mark Evered. Liana Thompson, UFV’s Director of Continuing Education, added, “we are very excited about creating a space geared towards working professionals who want to gain specific, applied, career-focused skills.” UFV News Release
