In fall 2010, the three communities on the north side of the Fraser River – Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge and Mission – jointly held an education forum that brought together leaders from regional educational institutions along with local leadership to discuss the potential for increased post secondary training on the north side of the Fraser. The forum was the catalyst for identifying the opportunity in the area. Key sectors where post secondary programming opportunities emerged were agri-food production, environmental training, tourism, entrepreneur incubation, healthcare and advanced manufacturing.
