Maple RidgeBordered by the Golden Ears Mountains to the north, Maple Ridge achieved “city” status only recently, in 2014, but is the province of British Columbia’s fifth-oldest municipality. East of the city of Surrey and an hour’s drive from the city of Vancouver, Maple Ridge has a small-town feel but with big-city amenities, like malls, community centres, dining hubs and parks. In 2021, the population had increased almost 11% (from 2016) to 90,990. New zoning for commercial and industrial lands should further expand local employment, while many residents commute daily to Vancouver and other neighbouring cities for work. Originally supported by forestry and agriculture, the economy of Maple Ridge is still largely dependent on these industries. In addition, Ridge Films Studios attracts celebrities to the city, and in the downtown core, known as Haney, malls, art galleries, art centres, theatres and farmers’ markets line the streets.
