Where are we? What’s happening out and about?
Whether you’re new to the community in Coquitlam, the home of the Earl Haig Retirement Residence, or you just want to get to know it better, we want to help you get familiar with your neighbourhood!
There are lots to see and do just outside your retirement home. Whether you travel by foot, by car, by transit, or by the Handy Dart. Though we have lots of activities happening at our retirement community for your well-being and pleasure, we encourage you to get out and about and take advantage of what the rest of Coquitlam offers!
