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.
Located approximately 45 kilometers east of Vancouver and nestled between the Fraser River and the iconic Golden Ears Mountain, Maple Ridge is minutes away from Golden Ears Provincial Park, Alouette Lake, Kanaka Creek Regional Park and the UBC Research Forest.
Maple Ridge consists of 266 square kilometers of diverse landscapes and topography, including access to several lakes and riverfront, sandy beaches and 12,000 hectares of agricultural land. The area is an attractive tourist destination as well as a popular location for a wide range of businesses.
Maple Ridge has seen recent major transportation infrastructure improvements via the new Golden Ears, Pitt River and Port Mann bridges and the South Fraser Perimeter Road, which have greatly improved access to Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and the USA.
