Coquitlam—Port Coquitlam is a federal electoral district in British Columbia. It encompasses a portion of the former electoral district of Port Moody—Westwood—Port Coquitlam.[3]

Coquitlam—Port Coquitlam was created by the 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution and was legally defined in the 2013 representation order. It came into effect upon the call of the 42nd Canadian federal election, where Liberal MP Ron McKinnon won in the riding.[4][5]
