Our Story

Community Services Council was certified as a registered charity by Revenue Canada in 1971 and was incorporated under the Society act in March 1972. The initial vision at the time was to act as an “umbrella organization”, that would help reduce costs, and increase the effectiveness of the individual organization or group, by pooling resources and increasing cooperation and collaboration between and among the member organizations.

The 1980s and 1990s saw a rapid increase in the number and variety of services offered by CSC. The nature of the funding also changed from grants to contracts. As a result, the organization also underwent some significant changes. The advent of contracts limited the number of direct community referrals, as the various funding ministries began to make more referrals to the organization. Community Services Council gradually developed into a single entity that offered a variety of different but also related services to the communities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. That is, it became a multi-service agency, with one Board of Directors, one Executive Director, and one management and decision-making structure.

This year, Maple Ridge / Pitt Meadows Community Services celebrates our 50th year anniversary with the launch our new building, Cornerstone Landing, at 22772 119th Avenue . With 94 affordable housing rental units and a huge commercial space for our community programming we are set to become a community social service hub. We employ over 60 people, work with over 40 community partners groups, provide 29 different programs, and have served over 17,000 people in our community this year.

The New Building

Scheduled for completion early 2022, our building will provide 94 units of housing that includes studio, one, two and three-bedroom homes as well as parking and office space for social service programs.
