Supporting Students


Dear Neighbour,

This past week was National Volunteer Week and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people in our community who have stepped up in support of our neighbours and community, despite challenges of COVID-19. There are countless people, organizations and businesses in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam that have shifted operations to answer the growing need for assistance. 

My team and I continue to work hard every day to respond to the needs and concerns of our community. We are still dealing with a high volume of urgent requests, but are committed to responding to every constituent. 

We are also focused on ensuring that everyone has the most up-to-date information and that it is accessible. For daily updates, follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or visit my website.

 This week, our government announced new supports for students and recent graduates to ensure students have the resources they need during these difficult times
