Its name was originally derived from the word, Kickininee or Kokanee, which is a small red fish like a sockeye salmon. The place started as a "place-in-between" during the construction of North Road in the middle of 1800's, and its purpose was to provide Royal Engineers within New Westminster access to the port's all-year facilities in Port Moody.
