In 2023, a Post Secondary Needs Assessment was conducted to determine the need for post-secondary education and training in Ridge-Meadows. Together, the communities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows (Ridge-Meadows) make up one of the fastest-growing regions in Metro Vancouver in terms of population. The assessment explored issues including:

  • Need for post-secondary education and training among area students, residents, and employers
  • Which post-secondary institutions current students from the area are attending
  • Any barriers to accessing post-secondary in the region
  • Current and projected local employer needs
  • Current and projected scale of need for students
  • The education and training opportunities adult learners will require to meet the evolving needs of employers in the region

The Ridge-Meadows Post-Secondary Needs Assessment report was presented to Pitt Meadows City Council on April 9, 2024.
