Welcome

cms_logoWelcome to the website of the Coquitlam Men’s Shed.

Help us build a Men’s Shed. This will be either a replacement for the shed (or workshop) you had before you downsized or lost to storage or the shed you always wanted. The shed has yet to be built and we could use your help to make it happen. We meet every Tuesday. There is a lot more to a Men’s Shed than you think, check the links to see what it is really all about, then come along and help. Oh! Previous experience with life and a respectful attitude are all the qualifications required.

We are now a society! See update here.

What Is It?

AMSA defines a men’s shed as a community-based, non-profit, non-commercial organization that is accessible to all men and whose primary activity is the provision of a safe and friendly environment where men are able to work on meaningful projects at their own pace in their own time in the company of other men. A major objective is to advance the well-being and health of their male members.

Would you be interested in a place where you can work on projects with others in the Coquitlam area? Would you like to learn some new skills? Do you have something you can teach or share with others? We’d like to hear from you!

The purpose is to offer men an alternate way to reach out, avoid ‘isolation’, find new opportunities and interests, to socialize and work along with other men on activities which give a sense of purpose.

One thought on “Welcome”

  1. I enjoyed meeting Duncan and Mike in Blue Mountain Park today, August 25th. Got a piece of wood to work on and enjoyed questioning Duncan and Mike about the concept of Men’s Shed, while each of us worked on their own wood project.

    Regards,
