The University of the Fraser Valley celebrated the latest phase in its development at the Canada Education Park in Chilliwack on Friday, May 11, by opening a new building.
The building, a combination of new construction and extreme renovation, will house most of the programs and services previously located at the Chilliwack Yale Road campus. It joins the UFV Trades and Technology Centre, which has been located at the Canada Education Park since 2007. The new building at Canada Education Park is a 150,000 square-foot facility. A large new inside structure was constructed in the outdoor courtyard of the previous military engineering school building, integrating the renovated sections into one cohesive facility.
While the building will be home to a variety of programs and courses, it will have a health and wellness theme. It is the home of the new Faculty of Health Sciences, including nursing, dental, health care assistant, and the new addition of the kinesiology and physical education program. Read more…….
