With a huge Indian diaspora settled in Canada, it has always nudged both the provincial and the federal governments in Canada to initiate an education relationship in India. It made immense sense since Canada would be far better placed to educate Indian students and integrate them into Canadian landscape ensuring quality of inbound students, who could be assured of their success in a new country. The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) took this forward and set up a small facility in the renowned GGSD College in Chandigarh, India in 2006 after signing a Memorandum of Understanding with Punjab University. Since 2006, UFV India has grown from strength to strength, both in terms of student enrolment, infrastructure expansion and program offerings. Our Alumni and current students are the true testaments of our commitment to academic excellence and success.
Located in the beautiful Fraser Valley just east of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) is a fully accredited public university that enrolls approximately 15,000 students per year. UFV has campuses and locations in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission, Hope and Agassiz, and a growing presence in Chandigarh, India. UFV strives to be a place of learning that recognizes, respects and includes indigenous ways of knowing. Our Fraser Valley locations are in the traditional territory of the Stó:lō peoples.
