Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteers help keep Coquitlam safe and clean, protect our environment and support our seniors and those in need. Volunteers make our community programs and events a success and provide a dynamic environment where all are welcome.

We appreciate the contributions of our volunteers, which are what allow us to extend our reach and impact in the community. Our volunteers help enrich the lives of others and makes Coquitlam a great place to live, learn and play.

Adopt-a Catch Basin

Coquitlam has over 16,000 catch basins removing excess water from our streets every time it rains. While they help prevent flooding on neighbourhood streets, we also need to protect the health of fish and aquatic habitat as the catch basins connect directly to our local watercourses.

Adopt-a-Catch Basin to keep it clear from leaves, debris, litter and snow !
