About Coquitlam

Scenic Views & waterfront access

The city of Coquitlam traces its origins to the Coast Salish people and their term, Kwikwetlem. This word referred to "red fish up the river," an apt representation of salmon's cultural importance among them. It is believed that they lived between two rivers - Fraser River and Coquitlam River - before explorers such as Simon Fraser passed through in 1808. The area was settled by Europeans during 1860s but it wasn't until North Road was established in mid-19th century that settlements begun springing around Port Moody due to easy access provided for Royal Engineers working there from New Westminster facility ports.

Since its incorporation in 1891, Coquitlam has come a long way. With the founding of Fraser Mills by James McLaren and Frank Mills on the banks of the Fraser River during the late 1890s came an influx of settlers to establish Maillardville - named after Father Edmond Maillard from France. Over time, this formerly small mill town developed into today's thriving urban centre; one that is home to various industries, agriculture and cultures alike!
