About Maple Ridge
The City of Maple Ridge is located on the unceded territory of the Katzie First Nation and Kwantlen First Nation. The City of Maple Ridge is located on the north bank of the Fraser River, approximately 40 kilometres east of Vancouver. Maple Ridge is on the eastern edge of the Metro Vancouver region in an area described as the urban interface (where the city meets the country).
Nestled below the Golden Ears mountain peaks on the north bank of the Fraser River, Maple Ridge is a perfect balance of urban sophistication and country splendour.
Maple Ridge, along with the neighbouring community to the west, Pitt Meadows, is surrounded on three sides by rivers and to the north the Golden Ears Mountain, part of the Coast Mountain Range. The City of Maple Ridge is one of the oldest incorporated communities in BC, established in 1874, just three years after BC joined confederation. The current population is estimated at over 85,000.
Here you can enjoy the slower pace and tranquil surroundings that are characteristic of a rural community, while being within easy access of Vancouver’s urban amenities. With miles of dikes, rivers, estuaries and parklands, you can hike, bike, camp, boat, or fish to your heart's content.
