Home to nearly 4,000 shooters, hunters, archers, law enforcement users and outdoor enthusiasts
Since 1956, the Port Coquitlam & District Hunting & Fishing Club has become one of B.C.’s largest outdoor ranges serving both civilian and government. With 10 outdoor ranges, indoor classroom and banquet facilities and a 3D archery range, PCDHFC located on Burke Mountain, Coquitlam is a destination for sports shooters, archers, hunters and law enforcement users from around the Lower Mainland.
As a registered non-profit organization, PCDHFC is dedicated to preserving shooting sports for our members and is answerable through our elected board of directors to our members and to our range users. Our range is professionally run by paid Range Officers, office staff and caretaker and is privy to inspection by the Chief Firearms Officer of B.C. Through our required courses and supervision, we ensure that shooters using our facilities are safe and obey the regulations and firearms laws of Canada.
The club and community
PCDHFC is a member of the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce. Every year we donate time and money to a number of charities through proceeds of our events, grants voted on by our directors and scholarships. We are co-hosts of the annual Como Lake Derby and participate in the annual Rivers Day celebration.
Supporting public safety
PCDHFC is used on a daily basis as a training center by a variety of Lower Mainland law enforcement and agencies including the RCMP, Port Moody PD, New Westminster PD, the B.C Conservation Officer Service, Vancouver Police Department and many others. In the run up to the 2010 Olympic Games, PCDHFC made our grounds available for the combined Olympic security force training that helped make the games pass without incident.
Supporting conservation and the environment
Our hunters and fishers know well the impact of human activity on the health of species on land and in the ocean. Through our Grist Goesen Hatchery we foster and release tens of thousands of salmon and trout every year in conjunction with partners in the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, B.C. Environment and our First Nations partners: the Kwikwetlem First Nation.
Our hunters and fishers participate in education and shore clean up in association with other efforts.
PCDHFC is a non-profit society with elected leadership. For a list of our current serving executive, please go here.
