Brief History - The City of Port Coquitlam was incorporated in March of 1913. Ferry service provided access between Pitt Meadows and Port Coquitlam.

Port Coquitlam is bounded on the south by the Fraser River, on the east by the Pitt River, on the west by the Coquitlam River and on the north by the Coast Mountains. The city's geographical location was one of the main factors leading to its incorporation. Its access to the Pitt and Fraser Rivers, proximity to Vancouver and the availability of level land for workshops and yards attracted the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, which moved its freight operations to the site of Port Coquitlam from Vancouver in 1911.

Promoters and speculators during the 1911 "Panama Fever" era visualized a great Port because the area bordered the banks of the Fraser River. Port Coquitlam never grew as quickly as they imagined it would but because of its natural beauty and charm it continued to attract many residents and businesses.

The population picture is steadily changing in Port Coquitlam. At the end of World War II, there were approximately 1,500 people residing in the area. In 1952, there were approximately 3,000 people and in 1960, the population was around 8,400. Today, the population is approximately 57,000.
