About the community:

The communities primarily served by the AGE’s programs in the Tri-Cities (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore, and Belcarra) and those of Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, are continuing to grow rapidly in size and social, economic and cultural diversity. When the AGE opened its doors to the community in 1996, the population of Coquitlam was 101,820 with the Tri-Cities population of 170,975. Today Coquitlam is home to over 138,000 people and is one of the fastest growing cities in Metro Vancouver, according to recently released Statistics Canada numbers. With the opening of the Lafarge Lake/Douglas College station on the Evergreen Skytrain line just steps from the AGE’s front entrance, audiences throughout Metro Vancouver now have easier access to the AGE and our programs than ever before. The City of Coquitlam hosts a number of vibrant community festivals and special events, a number of which take place in the park adjacent to the ECC attracting participants from throughout Metro Vancouver and the lower Fraser Valley.
