Spirit of Coquitlam Grant Program

In 2022, the City of Coquitlam used a portion of its share of provincial gambling revenue generated at Hard Rock Casino Vancouver to support various not-for-profit organizations through the Spirit of Coquitlam grant program. The Spirit of Coquitlam grant program builds community spirit by providing funds to community-based organizations for public art, sport activities and programs, festivals and events, and capital projects.

The City also allocated gambling revenue funding to the Société Francophone de Maillardville through a community grant for the Festival du Bois, an annual celebration of French Canadian history, art and culture, that draws participants from throughout the region.

Funds were also used to complete the new Maillardville Community Centre, which opened to the public in September 2022.
