ANNUAL AWARDS CELEBRATION – ONLINE JUNE 2020

Every year, the public is invited to participate in our Awards Celebration. In December of each year, a call for applications goes out to the public and community groups in the Tri-Cities. A grants and bursary review committee convenes to evaluate applications. In June of each year, the Coquitlam Foundation holds an awards ceremony where $100,000+ in grant, bursary and scholarship cheques are awarded to the successful applicants.

Our 2020 edition of our Awards Celebration was recorded over Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is shared below. We hope that next year we are able to celebrate and award our community winners in person!
