Investment Incentive Programs


An exceptional Metro Vancouver investment opportunity

We want your business—it’s as simple as that. That’s why we developed incentive programs that take a great investment opportunity and make it even better.
The Town Centre and the Employment Land investment incentive programs offer a wide variety of incentives for new commercial construction, renovation and façade improvement projects including:

  • Municipal property tax exemptions (additional exemptions apply to energy-efficient projects)
  • Building Permit Fee discounts
  • Partnering Incentives that reduce DCCs
  • Reduced parking standards (TCIIP only)
  • Brownfield Re-development Support
  • Canada-BC Job Grant

It’s no wonder that we’re becoming known as the new investment centre of the Lower Mainland. The Real Estate Investment Network (REIN) named Maple Ridge the 2010-2015 #5 Top Canadian Investment City citing our rapid population growth, under-valued real estate, improved accessibility and high quality of life in determining their rankings. Maple Ridge offers your business:

  • a growing and affluent population
  • access to skilled labour
  • improved access to markets
  • a wide variety of affordable and available commercial and industrial properties.

Whether you’re a business owner looking for a new location or a developer looking for a commercial or industrial property for your next project, there’s no better place to invest than Maple Ridge.

Eligible projects include commercial and mixed-use projects such as hotels, conference/meeting facilities, offices, post-secondary and retail developments and façade improvement projects in the Town Centre.
