The Coquitlam City Council is the governing body for the City of Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada.

The council consists of the mayor and eight councillors.[dated info]

The councillors are councilors-at-large elected for the entire city.

Municipal elections were held every three years across the Province on the third Saturday of November. However, the BC Gouvernment changed the Municipal Elections Act and moved the date to the third Saturday of October. Thus, the election will be on Saturday, October 20, 2018.

In the 2013 provincial election, two sitting councillors, Linda Reimer and Selina Robinson, were elected to the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia. Reimer initially speculated in the press about continuing to perform both roles, or simply taking an unpaid leave of absence from her city council duties until the 2014 municipal election, to spare taxpayers the expense of a by-election;[2] the council ultimately decided on July 8, 2013 to hold by-elections to replace them.[3]
