Poirier Forum

Fraser Health Vaccination Clinic

With the return of the Poirier Forum and Centennial Pavilion to Coquitlam Sept. 3, City recreation staff are now considering options for the sites this fall. City staff will reach out to the various user groups in September as plans are confirmed and spaces become available. 

Activities are not anticipated to resume until late September, as it will take two to three weeks to transition the buildings back to regular City use.
