The 2015 – 20​30 Arts, Culture & Heritage Strategic Plan (ACHSP) provides an overarching vision and strategic planning framework to guide the City and its partners in organizing, coordinating and prioritizing cultural programs and services that respond to current and future community needs. 

Where We Are

The City of Coquitlam recognizes the increasingly important role played by arts, cultural and heritage programs and experiences in:

  • engaging residents;
  • enhancing civic pride;
  • celebrating culturally diverse populations; and
  • contributing to the quality of life needed to attract people and investment in local economies.

The City provides facilities and annual operating funding and delivers a broad range of such services through direct delivery, partnerships with societies and non-profit providers, and via programming and other service offerings. Some of the cultural programming and events are supported through partial funding grants or other City actions.

The ACHSP recommendations and actions have been incorporated into the Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan.
