History

The Burquitlam Community Association (BCA) was established in 1997. It grew out an effort by citizens to stop a proposed Sky Train route through the Miller Park area because of concerns over potential ecological damage to the forest and bird habitat. The organization remains active, advocating for the residents of Burquitlam and fostering a strong sense of community in the area.

The BCA has been involved in a number of activities since its inception. It was instrumental in lobbying the City of Coquitlam and the RCMP to provide a satellite police station in the Burquitlam area, which was established in the Burquitlam Plaza. The group successfully advocated for the conversion of a city-owned lot at 515 Ebert Avenue into a community garden, which is now managed by the Burquitlam Community Organic Garden Society. The BCA was active in the consultation process with developers and contractors for the Millennium Line SkyTrain extension through Burquitlam. The BCA regularly organizes all candidates meetings during elections to ensure the interests of Burquitlam residents are taken into account.
