The City is positioned north of the Fraser River and lies between Burnaby to the west and the Pitt River to the east, residing as the sixth largest municipality in BC.
With a rising population of over 144,000, Coquitlam is also one of the fastest growing communities in the Lower Mainland, as reflected in recently released Statistics Canada numbers; the community grew 9.8% from 126,804 residents in 2011 to 138,284 in 2016.

From the early ’80s, the beginning days of development along the Austin corridor, to expansion in the Westwood Plateau, Burke Mountain, and Coquitlam Centre, the city has always been growing. The densification of Coquitlam Centre has been ongoing since the early 2000s, and will continue. However, the Coquitlam neighbourhoods positioned to experience a massive change in density are Burquitlam, and Lougheed.
West Coquitlam is poised to become one of the most important transit hubs in Metro Vancouver over the next decade and beyond. The new SkyTrain Evergreen line, which launched in December 2016, opened up major possibilities in Coquitlam and the condo market, with construction well underway in the Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan. Higher-density high-rise development will be centred around the SkyTrain stations and along North Road, giving way to medium-density homes (such as townhouses, row homes and 4-plexes) are being developed further away. Up to 9,000 to 10,000 new homes are anticipated in the area over the next 20 to 25 years, well past 2037. The current Coquitlam MLS stats indicate an average house price of $815,162. As of November 2017, Coquitlam housing data shows median days on the market for a home is 21 days.
The City embraces its multicultural makeup, including their French-Canadian and aboriginal heritage recognized in Maillardville, Coquitlam’s oldest and most historic neighbourhood. The Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan provides a contemporary vision for new growth and reinvestment. The redevelopment includes a walkable, high-density mixed use Neighbourhood Centre, unique residential districts, new commercial and growth opportunities and a variety of cultural and recreational activities.
