Created for Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017, this mosaic is made from 600 tiles hand painted by community members that represent different parts of Port Coquitlam’s history. Communities across Canada installed similar murals as part of the country wide celebration. Themes in PoCo’s mural include symbols and representations of kʷikʷəƛəm First Nations, Terry Fox, nature scenes, which all are connected by the railway.
