Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association

Maple Ridge is often called the best kept secret in the Lower Mainland. Given our quiet modesty of the past, that’s hardly a surprise -- despite the 75,000 people who call our town home and the visitors who, by the scores, flock to our region each year to take in exciting events and delight in our natural abundance.

Maple Ridge has long been a haven of plenty, where friendly locals offer warm welcome to visitors from all over the world. Here, creative, energetic people choose to visit for the host of engaging activities and choose to stay for the healthy, balanced lifestyle. Now, the best kept secret is about to unfold, and life will never be the same again. Life will be even better!
