Who: What’s On! Port Coquitlam

What: Port Coquitlam’s own community events, entertainment & leisure magazine and online

Where: www.whatsonpoco.ca

We are a community events, entertainment and leisure magazine and website focusing on what’s happening in Port Coquitlam. I’ve always wanted a career in the publishing/writing/editing world, but never actively pursued it. One of my friends was working on the Ridge Meadows edition of What’s On. I wanted to work with her at the time, but they weren’t hiring. When the What’s On name became licensed last year, I took the opportunity to research it more and purchase the rights to the Port Coquitlam license.


There’s so much that I love about my business now, from meeting so many people to hearing the positive feedback, to putting it all together. I think the best part, though, is when the magazines are delivered and I open the first box to see the new magazine. Very exciting to see it! Something I created!
I love the sense of community in Port Coquitlam. Even though it’s part of the busy Lower Mainland, it still feels like a small family-oriented community. Now, when I’m out selling, I run into someone I know around every corner. In five years, I want that feeling to continue and expand. I see us being the go-to place for residents and visitors in Port Coquitlam wanting to know what is going in their community.
