Three teams have been shortlisted to submit bids for the design, build, finance, and maintain of the new Abbotsford law courts project, which is estimated to create over 1,000 jobs during the course of construction.

Once built, the law courts are expected to double the capacity of the current courthouse, with opportunity to expand further. The new 14-room law courts will include three Supreme Court law courts, eight provincial court courtrooms, and three judicial conference rooms. The facility plans also incorporate justice-sector programs, such as the BC Prosecution Service, community corrections, and a Justice Access Centre, as well as a parkade to supplement parking requirements for the City of Abbotsford.

The new law courts will be constructed within the city centre civic precinct, on land leased to the province by the City of Abbotsford, and will be open and operating in 2021.

The project will proceed through requests for proposals in 2017, with design and construction expected to commence in mid-2018. To date, three proponent teams for the 30-year contract have been shortlisted for the project, including the following:
