Bear in area - Coquitlam Campus

It is the time of year that bears are frequently sighted around the Coquitlam campus. A bear has been seen on campus in the last few weeks. Please be vigilant and use extra caution when walking outside the Coquitlam campus.

If you see a bear:

  • DO NOT APPROACH THE BEAR and give them their space
  • Stay a safe distance of a 100m or more away from bear
  • Make loud noises/banging so the bear is aware that you are around

If you have a close encounter with bear:

  • Remain calm
  • Speak calmly to the bear and back away slowly
  • Retreat to safety
