History of the City
Coquitlam was a but of a late bloomer when it came to economic growth. Located between the North Bank of the Fraser River between Burnaby and New Westminster, it’s original inhabitants were the Coast Salish and Kwikwetlem people. The city’s name came from the word Kwikwetlem which actually referred to the salmon that travelled up the Coqutlam river to spawn in Coquitlam Lake. The name translates as “Small Red Salmon.”
In 1808 Simon Fraser passed through the region, but European settlements did not take place until the 1860’s. The area was full of life with a stable supply of fishing and resources to gather. The Fraser River made trade possible. For instance, one of the common trade items was baskets. There was little growth in the area during the 1860’s – late 1880’s.
Better times were on the horizon when in 1889 McLaren Mills (later known as Fraser Mills) opened its doors. It was built with the most advanced technology and it was the largest number mill operation of it’s kind. This brought laborer’s to the area and began to increase the population. This was the first of several economic booms for the region. Meanwhile, in 1981 Coquitlam was incorporated as a district municipality.
The 1900’s definitely changed the face of Coquitlam. Port Coquitlam and Fraser Mills had become divided politically and made the decision to form separate communities in 1913. The city’s continued to develop and grow, but after World War II Coquitlam felt a surge in the population and city structure. Coquitlam and Fraser Mills actually joined together which created a larger industrial base. Further to that, Lougheed Highway opened in 1953 increasing progress and popularity to the city.
The economy expanded in 1979 when Coquitlam Centre opened to the public. In addition, the 1980’s promoted more growth when additional opportunities in Trades Work began appearing across the city. This brought in many middle class families to the region and population increased again.
Finally in 1992, over 100 years after being incorporated as a district municipality, Coquitlam was incorporated as a city.
Coquitlam is now the sixth largest city in British Columbia. The mill is no longer open, and the land has been rezoned into a residential area. However, to this day Coquitlam remains primarily residential, but contains some large industries within its boundaries. For example, Sand & Gravel producers, and Concrete & Asphalt manufacturers. Coquitlam Town Centre has become the centerpiece for Civic, Cultural, and Educational Services in the city. There have also been many advancements in public transportation and accessibility to the area including busses and SkyTrain Lines this bringing COQUITLAM SKYTRAIN CONDOS to the area.
Coquitlam may not have had the same start as many other cities in the Lower Mainland, but it has come a long way since its original settlements.
