Steve Kim

Coquitlam-Maillardville Candidate

Today’s BC Liberals have acclaimed Steve Kim as the Party’s candidate for Coquitlam-Maillardville in the upcoming 2017 provincial election.


“I am honoured and humbled to be running again in my backyard of Coquitlam-Maillardville,” said Kim. “With three generations of family living in this riding, I understand the priorities in transportation, education and sustainable development. I want to build on a number one economy, create local jobs, and provide new services and infrastructure for future generations.”


Born in the Lower Mainland to immigrant parents from South Korea, Kim was raised in Coquitlam from the age of eight. As a small business owner and community volunteer, he has spent the past 16 years working in the digital media, technology and non-profit sectors supporting local business and grassroots organizations.


“By continuing to grow our economy through innovation and job creation, I firmly believe that we can build a better future for Coquitlam-Maillardville,” added Kim. “Over the past few years, our government, led by Premier Christy Clark, has made BC an economic leader in our country. But there is still more work to do. I will be the candidate that stays focused and delivers for our residents.”


Kim currently volunteers for the City of Coquitlam, serving on the Economic Development Advisory Committee. He also sits on the board of directors for Place des Arts.


Kim is pleased to have earned numerous endorsements from local government, small businesses, and non-profit leaders from across his riding:



  • “Steve Kim is committed to our community. He recognizes the importance of creating jobs and growing the economy in our own backyard so that we may invest in the right services and programs for today and for future generations. I am very pleased he was acclaimed again as the BC Liberal candidate.” – Teri Towner, Councillor, City of Coquitlam

  • “Steve and I have worked together for several volunteer organizations, and I’ve seen first-hand the passion and dedication he has for community building and outreach across Metro Vancouver. With his proven leadership skills and his results-oriented approach, I know Steve Kim will serve the people of Coquitlam-Maillardville very well.” – Dennis Chan, Director, Pathway Advisory Services and Former Chair, SUCCESS
