Located under 40 minutes from Vancouver, the communities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows offer spectacular natural surroundings and some of the most affordable real estate prices in Metro Vancouver.
In 2016, BC Business magazine ranked both fast-growing communities among the top 25 of its annual Best Cities for Work in B.C. list.
Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows provide the perfect blend of urban and rural living.
The region is a gateway to some of BC’s most pristine wilderness, including Golden Ears Provincial Park. Parks, trails and dike systems offer boundless year-round outdoor recreation opportunities, including hiking, biking, fishing and golfing, among others.
But it’s not just about the close proximity to outdoor activities. Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows also have thriving arts and culture scenes, an abundance of seasonal festivals, community events and markets, modern amenities, and a diverse range of shopping and dining options.
Plus, it’s much more affordable to live here – whether you choose to buy or rent.
“It’s the ideal spot to work, play and raise a family. It’s close enough to Vancouver to enjoy the big city, yet far enough away to be affordable and full of nature’s playgrounds,” said James, a long-time teacher with the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District.
“What I love about living and working here is that although we are an innovative growing district, it still has a close-knit feel on the edge of nature. Parks, mountains, lakes, streams and fields are within walking distance of many schools and school communities. When it comes to place-based learning, there may be no better place around to live.”
