Maple Ridge: An Exceptional Investment Opportunity
Economic Development connects investors, developers and businesses with opportunities in Maple Ridge. Our goal is to attract investment to diversify the economy and create high value local jobs. To do this, we have developed a strategic plan focused on four priority investment attraction sectors:advanced technology, education, tourism and agriculture.
Maple Ridge is primed and ready for investment. Located along the north shore of the Fraser River in British Columbia's prosperous Lower Mainland, our region is forecast to double in population and jobs. With some 600 square kilometres of land known for its spectacular natural beauty, affordability, diverse workforce and accessibility to major transportation, it's no wonder we're attracting attention as the new investment centre of the Lower Mainland.
Canada Starts Here: The BC Jobs Plan
The BC Jobs Plan aims to create long-term jobs and investment across the province by building on our key competitive advantages. To achieve this, the provincial government is supporting communities in developing projects that will result in long-term benefits and boost job creation. The North Fraser communities are the first pilot region to partner with the BC government on the BC Jobs Plan. We encourage you to learn more about the the proposed projects for our region.
