Annual Welcome to Coquitlam goes Oct. 3

Event introduces newcomers to all the programs and services available in the city

Newcomers — and longtime residents, too — can learn more about their community at the annual Welcome to Coquitlam event at city hall Wednesday, Oct. 3 from 2 to 8 p.m.

The free event will highlight the city’s programs and services. It is designed to particularly help newcomers get the most out of the community, although all Coquitlam residents are invited to attend, according to a city press release. Translators will be available.

Those who attend can speak with staff and council about programs and services like finance, property tax, recycling, garbage, parks and recreation, and employment and volunteer opportunities. Representatives from 17 community agencies will also be on site.

City vehicles, including fire truck, police truck and boat, city works vehicles and the library’s Link Van will be on display from 2 to 5 p.m. on Burlington Drive.

The event started in 2010 with almost 3,500 people participating since then. For more information, visit
