Coquitlam

This article is about the metropolitan region of Coquitlam, British Columbia. As a realtor, I created a data chart to show the real estate market of recent years.

Coquitlam is situated some 10 to 15 km (7 to 10 miles) east of Vancouver, where the Coquitlam River connects with the Fraser River and extends northeast along the Pitt River toward the Coquitlam and Pitt lakes. Coquitlam borders Burnaby and Port Moody to the west, New Westminster to the southwest, and Port Coquitlam to the southeast. Burke Mountain, Eagle Ridge, and 1,583 m (5,194 ft) tall Coquitlam Mountain form the northern boundary of the city. Coquitlam’s area, 152.5 square kilometers (58.9 sq mi), dwarfs the other communities in the Tri-Cities; it is about six times larger than either Port Moody or Port Coquitlam.

According to the 2006 Canadian census, there were 114,565 people living in the municipality in 43,241 private dwellings. 37% of households contained a married couple with children, 25% contained a married couple without children, and 22% were one-person households. Of the 32,185 reported families: 77% were married couples with an average of 3.2 persons per family, 15% were lone-parents with an average of 2.5 persons per family, and 8% were common-law couples with an average of 2.6 persons per family. The median age of Coquitlam’s population was 39.0 years, slightly younger than the British Columbia median of 40.8 years. Coquitlam had 82.6% of its residents 15 years of age or older, less than the provincial average of 83.5%.

In the same 2006 census, about 41% of Coquitlam residents were foreign-born, much higher than the 27% foreign-born for the whole of British Columbia. 61% of respondents claimed to not be a visible minority, while the largest visible minorities included Chinese (17.2%), Korean (5.3%), South Asian and West Asian (both 3.7%), and Filipino (2.7%). 58% of respondents list English as their mother tongue, while 96% state having knowledge of English.

Also according to the 2006 census, the median income in 2005 for married families was $74,049, compared to the provincial average of $69,207. The median income in 2005 for all families was $67,031, compared to the provincial average of $62,346. 55.7% of respondents 15 years of age and older claim to have a post-secondary certificate, diploma or degree, compared to 52.2% province-wide. The 2001 census found that 26.2% of Coquitlam residents are Protestant and 22.6% are Catholic. 7.8% belong to other Christian denominations, 8.6% are adherents of other religions, and 34.8% profess no religion.

Only 25.3% of Coquitlam residents who work outside the home work within the city of Coquitlam itself, just over half the provincial average of 48.7% of residents who work within their own municipality, yet 18.2% of Coquitlam residents take public transit or bicycle or walk to work, close to the provincial average of 19.2%.
