Kilgard is a neighbourhood of Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, located a few kilometres east of that city's core, on the north side of the Trans-Canada Highway at the foot of Sumas Mountain. [1] The community and its name are connected with a former brickworks at the site, which produced a good quality fire brick; it was a sister community to Clayburn, which is nearby on the northwest side of Sumas Mountain, which also had a clay mine and brickworks. The Upper Sumas 6 Indian Reserve of the Sumas First Nation is located at Kilgard.[2]
