Community Engagement

Community engagement – also called public participation – plays an important role in realizing and shaping many of Coquitlam’s projects, policies and plans, and there is a public expectation to be informed and, where appropriate, reasonably engaged in the decision-making process. 

Coquitlam’s Community Engagement Framework formalizes and provides clarity to decision-makers, staff and participants about how Coquitlam informs and involves the community and other interested parties in the City’s decision-making process.
