New regional Sikh elementary school and daycare planned in Abbotsford

June 2, 2024

A new Khalsa elementary school, post-secondary institution and daycare is one step closer to final approval in Abbotsford.

Council on Tuesday (May 28) gave initial approval to an amendment to the Official Community Plan and to a rezoning and development variance permit for the project at Downes and Gladwin roads.

The matter now proceeds to a public hearing at a later date before coming back to council for final approval.

A staff report to council indicates that the privately run Sikh-based elementary school will have a capacity of 500 students. The proposal also calls for a childcare centre for 94 kids and a post-secondary facility that is 1,253 square metres (13,494 square feet).
