It's no wonder that Maple Ridge is attracting attention as the new investment centre of the Lower Mainland. Residents and businesses are drawn to the city by our spectacular natural beauty, affordability, diverse workforce and accessibility to major transportation.

To keep this momentum going, Maple Ridge is actively fostering a business climate that encourages private investment and a thriving local economy. Investment by new and existing companies helps meet the growing demand for the high-value local jobs our community needs, and contributes to a sustainable, vibrant economy for generations to come. Maple Ridge was named the 2010-2015 #5 Top Canadian Investment City by the Real Estate Investment Network.
