The three major communities making up the Tri-Cities (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody) have come together as a unified region located north of the mighty Fraser River and nestled at the base of the beautiful Coquitlam Mountain Ranges. The Tri-Cities are located approximately 25 minutes (27 km) outside of Vancouver’s city centre. With easy access to major highways, the neighbouring municipalities are conveniently accessible via a widespread network of public transit including bus routes, the SkyTrain, and the West Coast Express commuter rail.
Combined, these communities have a population of over 234,000 residents. The Tri-Cities have been deemed one of the fastest growing regions in Metro Vancouver.
Thriving industries in the Tri-Cities include manufacturing, rail transportation, construction, retail and wholesale, and tourism and food services. Due to rapid growth in the region, finance, insurance, and real estate have also become key contributors to the economy in the Tri-Cities.
For the outdoor adventurer or city-goer, there are no shortage of activities. Horseback riding, fishing, canoeing, boating and swimming at nearby lakes, and hiking, are all popular activities in the area and are abundantly available. Spend the day hiking at Minnekhada Regional Park or visit a food truck while you check out the Lights at Lafarge.

The Tri-Cities is made up of an extensive network of trails and pathways, including the well-known 25 km Traboulay PoCo Trail, which encircles the area.

 
The Tri-Cities are the third largest public-school district in British Columbia, serving the entire region of Anmore, Belcarra, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody. Schools include kindergarten through grade 12, with a number of private schools in the area.

Douglas College and Coquitlam College are two post-secondary institutions in the area. Simon Fraser University (SFU) and the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) are easily accessible from the Tri-Cities in neighbouring communities.

Anna
“It’s close to home and I love serving the residents in the community where I live in. OR nursing has been known to be challenging, exciting and most important of all, we are caring for patients in vulnerable situations when they are under general anesthesia. I am proud of what we do to advocate for the patients. It’s also an on-going learning environment with introduction of new technological equipment used in the OR. Working in the OR for the last 35 years, I have never felt bored for one day. I love my job and I love serving the residents in the community where I live in!”
OR Nurse, Eagle Ridge Hospital
