About Us

What does Downtown PoCo do?

Formed in 1994, Downtown Port Coquitlam Business Improvement Association is a non-profit organization under the direction of a volunteer board. We work hard to promote the interests of our members: the licensed business operators and property owners located within our boundaries.  We receive our authority from City of Port Coquitlam Bylaw No. 3736, which established the Downtown Business Improvement Area.


We believe that giving back is a great way to increase our members’ exposure while building loyalty and relationships in the community. Which is why we are a proud sponsor of several local events and initiatives that happen within our community. Visit our sponsorship page to see what we sponsor.


We want the downtown to be a warm and welcoming place for visitors to experience PoCo. We put on multiple events throughout the year that are designed to appeal to a wide variety of people and bring them into the downtown. Check out our events calendar to see what we have going on next.


We are working hard to showcase downtown PoCo as the vibrant, fun, and unique community that it is. Our marketing materials and social media channels are designed to increase visits, outline the benefits of shopping locally, and highlight the businesses in our area.


Striving to create a safe, beautiful, and prosperous downtown, we work with key stakeholders to advocate for positive change. As the voice of the downtown business community, we look for input from our membership to make sure we are focusing on the issues that are affecting them.


We represent over 300 business members within the downtown PoCo community. All businesses that are physically located within our boundaries are automatically members. Check out our membership directory to discover local businesses that are ready to help you with whatever you need.
