About the Tri-Cities

Rarely does a community combine the pleasant surroundings of suburban life with all the amenities required by business to facilitate economic activity.

The cities of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody – each one unique from the other – have come together as a unified region to provide the best possible recipe for the encouragement of economic growth. The Tri-Cities also includes the Villages of Belcarra and Anmore, semi-rural residential communities known for their extensive parkland and picturesque vistas.

The Tri-Cities area is one of the fastest growing regions in Metro Vancouver. It has attracted substantial industrial and commercial development in the past 35 years and it is continuing to grow. Presently, approximately 234,700 people reside within the region.

This community’s steady growth and current status is evidenced by one of the largest malls in BC, a modern hospital, churches of numerous denominations, and an extensive range of community services. With an effective system of public and private schools, and close proximity to various post secondary institutions, the facilities combine to provide a rich quality of life – not only to its residents, but also to businesses and industrial enterprises located within the region.
