‌Welcome to the Agriburban Research Centre at the University of the Fraser Valley

The Agriburban Research Centre (ARC) is dedicated to the study of landscapes on the edge of major urban areas, with a focus on creating thriving agricultural regions within regional cities. ARC will draw on global examples to study intensive agriculture, residential and agricultural interactions, agrarian migration experiences, fringe development, agricultural/ecological interactions, and land use regimes. Created as a joint project between UFV Geography and UFV Agriculture, ARC is intended to be a centre for excellence in the area of the rural/urban fringe.



Congratulations to Dr. Lenore Newman, who has been named to the inaugural cohort of the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists. Read more about this appointment here.

On October 1, UFV presented Life in Agriburbia, a panel discussion and exhibition on the issues that arise when suburbia and farmland converge. View photos from the exhibition here.
