Fraser Mills was a municipality on the north bank of the Fraser River,[1] incorporated in 1913,[2] but since amalgamated with the City of Coquitlam.

Location[edit]

Located south of that city's Maillardville neighbourhood, which was founded as a townsite for the workers at the large pulp mill whose grounds comprised Fraser Mills. It was just east of the boundary of the City of New Westminster and mostly on the south side of the Trans-Canada and Lougheed Highways. The site for many years after its abandonment was the Terranova landfill for Greater Vancouver waste disposal, land which has since become a focus for big-box store development along United Boulevard, which has come to serve as an alternate route for traffic bypassing jams on the adjacent freeway and highway.
