Overview

Region:  Lower Mainland/Southwest

Regional District:  Greater Vancouver

Located at the centre of Metro Vancouver on the banks of the Fraser River, New Westminster is the place to be. As the oldest city in western Canada, and the first capital of British Columbia, the “Royal City” has a proud heritage with much to offer to residents and visitors alike.

New Westminster is a vibrant transportation hub, featuring five rapid transit stations and ready access to major highways, rail and water. Situated 20 km east of Vancouver, travel to Vancouver International Airport, downtown Vancouver and the US border can take as little as 30 minutes.

A city with a “small town feel”, residents of New Westminster share a unique connection. Our many neighbourhoods, from Queensborough to Sapperton, and everywhere in between, have grown over the years and today combine to form a special community.

Recent development growth has resulted in high quality housing options for a young and growing labour force that enjoys the affordable lifestyle, beautiful parks and community amenities in the Royal City. As the oldest city in Western Canada, New Westminster offers the unique combination of heritage charm and the livability of a smaller community along with access to world-class educational, cultural and commercial opportunities.
