Mission joins INF website

The Invest North Fraser initiative aims to encourage development in Mission, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows

Invest North Fraser, a regional economic development initiative of Mission, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, launched a joint web portal to highlight the investment opportunities north of the Fraser River.

The regional web portal provides prospective investors with 24/7 access to information about the North Fraser region’s 600 square kilometres of land and has a simple click-thru to each community’s economic development website. The communities boast large tracts of underdeveloped industrial land, some of the best outdoor recreation in the Lower Mainland and affordable land for development and redevelopment. The North Fraser region is forecast to double in population and employment over the next 30 years.

In addition to launching the web portal, other projects in the Invest North Fraser collaborative work plan include hosting investment seminars and bringing in expertise from key industry sectors.  Marketing the region and promoting regional assets are key strategies.

Stacey Crawford, Mission’s economic development officer, said, “The web portal will serve as a single platform upon which the three partner communities can leverage resources, share information, build relationships and promote regional economic development initiatives.”
