Part of Coquitlam’s Community Support and Recovery Plan
The Community Volunteer Support program is provided through the Coquitlam COVID-19 Community Support and Recovery Plan (CSRP), which is supporting all sectors of the community through the pandemic.
The City launched the multi-phased CSRP to foster targeted immediate and long-term support for businesses, residents and the not-for-profit sector. By early 2022, Coquitlam will have invested close to $4 million in community pandemic relief through the CSRP.
In September 2021, the Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM) named Coquitlam’s CSRP as the first recipient of the Presidents Committee Choice award, which provides special recognition to a B.C. community for its outstanding response to the pandemic.
Information about the CSRP is posted at www.coquitlam.ca/csrp.
