Coquitlam is a city in the Lower Mainland in the western Canadian province of British Columbia. With a population just over 139,000, it’s the sixth-largest city in B.C.

In the last couple of decades, there’s been quite a lot of growth in the city. From 2006 to 2011 the population grew by almost 11% and grew again by almost 10% between 2011 and 2016. The three most commonly spoken languages in Coquitlam are English (55%), Korean (6%) and Persian (5%).

As a bedroom community, most of Coquitlam’s working population heads to the nearby Highways and commuter passenger trains to get to work. Those that stay in the city to work usually head to southern Maillardville and the Fraser Mills area, where the city’s main industrial area lies. The largest employers in the city are the municipal offices, Art in Motion and the Hard Rock Casino. However, Coca-Cola, Sony and Rolls-Royce also have divisions in the city.

In December 2016, the Evergreen extension was completed—a long extension of Vancouver’s SkyTrain Millennium Line. The project cost $1.4 billion but linked the Coquitlam Central Station, to Port Moody, to the Lougheed Town Centre. There’s also the West Coast Express that provides commuter rail service to downtown Vancouver and east to Mission.  

The city has its own retail and industrial sectors but most residents commute to work, travelling to places in Vancouver, Burnaby and other mainland suburbs.

Culturally, Coquitlam is like many B.C. cities. It got its start as a community when a group of Coast Salish people first settled here. Eventually, European explorer Simon Fraser came to the area and by the 1860s there was a European settlement. Still, the city’s name is derived from a Coast Salish term, Kwitwetlem, which means “red fish up the river.” The city sits on the Coquitlam River, which connects to the Fraser River, a world-renowned fishing spot.

Neighbourhoods

There are at least 20 neighbourhoods that make up the city of Coquitlam, spread out over three distinct, geographical areas.

The original city of Coquitlam is in the south-west, where Maillardville and Fraser River are located. In this part of the city there’s a large residential area known as Austin Heights, however, it’s affectionately known as “The Bump” because of its high, flat topography. While you can still buy older, character homes for sale on large lots in this community, more and more of these homes are being torn down and replaced with larger, newer houses. One big draw in this community is Como Lake, a well-known urban fishing and recreation spot. Mundy Park is also in this community. It’s one of the largest urban parks in the Metro Vancouver area. In this same area, there’s the neighbourhood of Riverview Heights. It’s a community of about 250 single family homes that are close to the Port Coquitlam border.

Moving north, there’s Coquitlam Town Centre. This area was designated as a Regional Town Centre, under the Metro Vancouver’s Livable Strategic Plan. As a result, a lot of money was put into the area to create high-density, mixed-use development. Many of the city’s public buildings can be found in this neighbourhood, including City Hall, the R.C.M.P. station, the main fire hall as well as the Aquatic Complex.

Even further north, towards the mountains, are the newer residential communities. One popular community is Westwood Plateau. Family homes are typically larger and updated and at a price-point, that is quite reasonable when compared with what’s available in other cities in that price range. One drawback to Westwood Plateau and other northern residential neighbourhoods is that it can add an extra 20 to 40 minutes to a commuter’s daily journey.

To find out what neighbourhood is best for you, spend a weekend checking out open houses in Coquitlam. As a guide, use our hot-list which ranks all Coquitlam-based on how many listings are available, the average sale price and how long houses for sale stay on the market.

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to Coquitlam’s downtown core. Good options include Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and Maple Ridge. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or commuter train stations, such as Port Moody Centre or Gates Park. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as New Westminster, Surrey and Langley are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Local Scoop

You don’t end up moving to B.C. if you don’t have some sort of affinity for the great outdoors. Turns out Coquitlam is an amazing place to soak up some of that fresh air. Whether you decide to hike the Coquitlam Crunch, or stroll through Mundy Park or Minnekhada Regional Park, or check out Crystal Falls, or fish in Como Lake, or find some beauty at Inspiration Garden, there’s a piece of the great outdoors that’s sure to suit your needs.  

If the weather isn’t cooperating, spend a day at the Evergreen Cultural Centre. Considered the city’s arts hub, this centre presents entertaining and outstanding live performances and hosts exhibitions that both intrigue and inspire city residents. The centre also hosts classes and workshops for kids, youth and adults interested in getting on the stage or trying their hand at visual art mediums.

Another option is to check out one of three major sports and recreation complexes throughout the city. Most offer pools, hot tubs, saunas and steam rooms as well as various arenas and gyms. You can also take the kids to Crash Crawly’s, an indoor playground that features a two-storey crazy maze of tunnels, bridges, ball pits, slides and more.

For a more historical perspective check out Mackin House. Built in 1909, this Edwardian home is staged with period furniture and artefacts. Visitors are allowed to wander through the rooms, touching and experiencing the house as it was over 100 years ago. Tour guides offer a deeper, richer glimpse into the turn of the century life in Coquitlam.

If you feel a bit daring check out Climb Base5, home to the largest climbing wall in Metro Vancouver. There are over 16,000 square feet of climbing space plus a 1,000 square-foot “Tsunami Wall” for bouldering. If you’d rather focus your aim, consider a day at DVC Ventures. It’s the only indoor shooting centre in B.C. that rents firearms and a shooting gallery to the public.
