ew Westminster has a long and exciting history of commerce. Once a bustling commercial hub on Canada’s West Coast, today our city continues to seize opportunity through progress and innovation in a digital age. Working together, we are focusing our energy and creative spirit and fostering a positive environment for businesses of every size to thrive and grow. With BridgeNet, our City-owned dark fibre network, we’re building essential infrastructure to support local growth and innovation. At the same time, improvements to our parks and open spaces are putting livability at the forefront, ensuring New Westminster is a desirable place for businesses and their employees to locate. Our efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. New Westminster was recently named a SMART21 community by the Intelligent City Forum, and the Front Street Mews project in our downtown was recognized with an award from the Economic Development Association of British Columbia.
