In the City of Coquitlam, dogs must be on-leash everywhere unless designated by a sign as an off-leash area.

10. Control of Animals
10.1 Except in areas and at times specifically designated by a posted notice as being an off leash area, every owner of an animal must ensure that the animal, other than an altered cat, is not, at any time, at large.
