WORKSHOPS & PROGRAMS

Tri-Cities & Ridge Meadows

The Tri-Cities is composed of the cities of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody, and the villages of Anmore and Belcarra. Maillardville in Tri-Cities is home to the province's oldest francophone community. One of the most anticipated developments in Tri-Cities is the 2017 launch of the Evergreen Skytrain Line connecting the region to Vancouver. Tri-Cities is one of the fastest growing areas in Metro Vancouver and has attracted many new families. Just between the Fraser River and the Golden Ears Mountains is Ridge Meadows, a small community made up of the cities of Maple Ridge and Ridge Meadows. Although it is still highly agricultural (85% of the province's Agricultural Land Reserves are in Pitt Meadows), Ridge Meadows uniquely combines both urban life with rural farms, mountains, and lakes.

Services are offered in the following languages:

English, French, Korean, Farsi, Mandarin, Cantonese and Arabic.
