Community is something of great importance to everyone at POCO Building Supplies. As Port Coquitlam’s oldest running business, we helped build this Community and recognize that collectively we can grow together. Our initiates towards Sustainability see us utilizing as many local suppliers as possible – and we see value in keeping our own spending as close to home as possible.
We’re proud members of the Building Supply Industry Association of BC (BSIA of BC), Greater Vancouver Home Builders Association (GVHBA), Canadian Home Builders Association (CHBA), Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses (CFIB), and are associated with the Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA).
Staff and Management have – at various times – served on the boards of the Port Coquitlam BIA, the BSIA of BC and have also volunteered to serve on Council Committees in both the City of Port Coquitlam and the City of Coquitlam.
Every year, we donate over $20,000 to various organizations in our Community and beyond. Whether it’s supporting our local Hospice, sponsoring a local sports team, or providing funds towards academic bursaries at a local school – we recognize the importance of contributing to our Community and value our ongoing relationships with the following:

In February 2013 we noticed a request (on Twitter) to help with the supply of various Building Materials required to fix-up a local animal shelter in desperate need of repair. We were able to donate enough Lumber, Plywood and Drywall to West Coast German Shepherd rescue and Pekingese Rescue of BC to help owner Lisa Bogardi make sure that her dogs were kept warm and dry over the winter and beyond. Here’s a note from Lisa (via our Facebook page – where you can check out other people’s response to our contribution).
“West Coast German Shepherd rescue would like to say a big thank you to Port Coquitlam Building supplies for their generous donation and delivery of building materials for the repair of our dog shelter in South Langley. We were thrilled to be delivered plywood and other materials for the repair of our leaking roof. We were in a very urgent situation when this supply company simply asked us for a list of things needed and immediately had them delivered to us within a few days! Thank you So much for your generosity in our time of need. Many dogs here thank you too.”
