Community Support & Recovery Plan

Supporting our Community through the COVID-19 Pandemic

In May 2020, the City of Coquitlam launched the COVID-19 Community Support and Recovery Plan (CSPR) to provide direct relief to residents, businesses and non-profits and to foster community resilience and recovery.

Coquitlam allocated an initial $5-million from reserve funds to develop multi-phased framework to support all sectors of the community with projects and initiatives within the jurisdiction of local government. Additional funding is possible based on emerging needs and opportunities.

To promote economic recovery, the City is also seeking federal and provincial stimulus funding for City capital projects to provide jobs and promote economic recovery.

Because the CSRP is intended to be flexible and responsive to new challenges and opportunities, programs may change or be added in the months ahead.
