Coquitlam recognizes that Canada Day can mean different things for different members of our community. As a result, the City has adapted the July 1 event to provide a day that is sensitive to the diverse range of community perspectives. Canada Day in Coquitlam is a safe and inclusive family-friendly event with a wide range of entertainment, multicultural performances, fireworks, food, fun activities and opportunities to learn more about Canadian and pre-colonial Indigenous history.
