After an amazing reception of our last magazine, there was some anticipation and inquiries as to when this year's issue was going to be released.'s here and we couldn't be more proud of the result!

We had the pleasure of working with some key players in the world of Fraser Valley land development to bring this 2018 Varing Magazine issue to life. It's always a challenging yet rewarding process to make sure that we're giving our readers something resourceful and we think that our contributors have most certainly delivered.

A huge thank you to everyone involved!

  • Mayor Jack Froese for his time and comments on the updates to the Brookswood/Fernridge. It's always a great opportunity to meet with government leaders to gain a new perspective.
  • Mark Neill from Abbotsford's City Planning department for his update on Abbotsford's development progress since last year's article with Mayor Henry Braun on the Abbotsforward OCP release.
  • VP of Qualico Communities, Ryan Jones, for his candid answers in our Industry Influencer Q&A section. They provide some great insight into the joys and challenges of his role in land development.
  • thank you to Rick Gendemann. As a partner with Elliott Manning, he was able to share helpful answers to some common financial questions with development real estate.

We hope you enjoy this year's magazine!
