by Kevin Henkelman |

COQUITLAM, BC, June 16, 2015 – The results of Coquitlam’s 2015 Citizen Survey are in and, on the whole, residents are highly-satisfied.

The survey, conducted by Ipsos-Reid, asks a range of questions around quality of life, important issues, City services and financial planning. This year the survey also included information about communication and community engagement.

On the whole, Coquitlam residents are highly-satisfied: 


  • 98% said they have a good quality of life;
  • 96% said they are satisfied with the level and quality of City services;
  • 88% said they receive good value for their tax dollars – 7% higher than the Lower Mainland average and 9% higher than the B.C. average.

The statistically-valid results provide sound insight into what the City is doing well, areas for improvement, and changing or emerging trends.

The results of the survey help to inform future corporate planning processes, including budgeting, strategic planning and business planning.
