An Exceptional Vancouver-area Investment Opportunity

Unprecedented growth

Maple Ridge is one of the fastest growing regions in BC: the Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy forecasts our population and number of jobs to almost double by 2040. This growth is being spurred by a combination of affordable, available land, improved access to major markets; and an incredible quality of life. See our Community Profile for more details.

Investment Incentive Programs

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 in the Town Centre and on identified Employment Land. Eligible projects include commercial and industrial developments, hotels, office buildings, post-secondaries and the commercial component of mixed-use developments.
