HISTORY

The area’s first inhabitants were the Katzie and Whonnock First Nations. They lived and hunted the land

for centuries before the first settlers arrived.

Fewer than 50 families came to build the community of Maple Ridge in 1874. Many of the settlers

worked for the Hudson Bay Company trading post at Fort Langley. In 1885 the railway came through

and attracted more people to the area. Two Scottish-born settlers John McIver and Samuel Robertson

were successful at turning their claims into workable farmland. McIver started the area’s first daily farm.

He named his farm Maple Ridge because beautiful Maple trees surrounded the farm.

TODAY

The stable economy of Maple Ridge is based mainly on agriculture. Maple Ridge has a long frost-free

processing.
