Supporting our Community through the COVID-19 Pandemic

On May 4, 2020, the City of Coquitlam launched the Community Support and Recovery Plan (CSRP) to provide targeted and meaningful support to those in need due to the COVID-19 health crisis.

The CSRP is intended to address the pandemic’s short-term and long-term financial impact on all sectors of the community: businesses, residents and the non-profit sector.

A Broad Plan to Support the Community

Coquitlam has allocated $5-million in preliminary funding to develop a plan for short-term and long-term assistance for residents, businesses and non-profits. Initiatives have already begun to roll out (see below) and additional measures will be considered as part of the 2021 budget.

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

Coquitlam is committed to investing in those most in need. The CSRP will benefit all community members, while keeping the City in a financial position to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Initiatives to Date

A wide variety of additional support is also being considered, targeted grants for non-profit organizations, reduced or waived City fees, technology investments and marketing to support local businesses.
