New Westminster RECORD THURSDAY August 22, 2019 B3

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS!

Welcome to the 20th Annual Readers’ Choice Awards, it’s one of our highlights each and every year at The Record. As You may recall, we published ballots during the month of May and offered a $750 shopping spree at Royal City Centre as an incentive for you, the loyal reader, to cast your votes for the best in New West in 120 business categories. While our contest does not qualify as a scientific survey, the level of participation definitely lends credibility to the outcome as do our strict rules on how we count and qualify every ballot. Each ballot must contain a minimum of 25 businesses voted upon, only one ballot is accepted per individual, and only original ballots cut out of the newspaper or entered online were counted. All other entries were disqualified. I want to offer my sincere congratulations to the businesses who received this year’s Readers’ Choice Award. They are all deserving of our recognition as The Best in New West. But please don’t just take our word for it; visit the winning businesses listed in this special feature and decide for yourself. The Record would like to congratulate this year’s winner of the Royal City Centre Shopping Spree, Ms. Pamela McDonald. We also sincerely thank all of you who participated and entered this year’s contest and we look forward to counting your votes next year.

QUEEN’S PARK DENTAL Best Cosmetic Dentistry

The award-winning Queen’s Park Dental has earned a reputation for its unwavering dedication to its patients. This simple, yet leading concept, has been one of the guiding principles here for over ten years. Founded by Dr. Darcy Murphy, he and his team offer a comprehensive range of dental services in an environment that is relaxed and inviting. His clinic specializes in a wide range of services and the most up-todate advancements in general dentistry, including dental implants, dental veneers, Invisalign, Botox, as well as teeth whitening and more. In keeping with its ethos of providing cutting edge technology, Dr. Murphy was the first dentist in North America to purchase the 5D iTero imaging system scanner. This replaces the traditional dental impression material or dental goo in your mouth. First intraoral scanner with near-infrared imaging (NIRI) technology that scans the internal structure of a tooth (enamel & dentin) in real time. First integrated dental imaging system that simultaneously records 3D, intra-oral color and NIRI, and enables comparison over time using iTero® TimeLapse. NIRI technology of the iTero Element® 5D system aids in detection and monitoring of interproximal caries lesions (cavities) above the

gingiva without using harmful radiation. Dr. Murphy comes with exceptional credentials. The highly skilled professional graduated in 2003 with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the well-respected Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. While at Dalhousie, he was elected Class President, President of the Dental Society and Class Valedictorian. In addition, Dr. Murphy was accepted into a one-year Dentistry General Practice Residency (GPR) at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton. After that, he went on to practice in New Westminster for five years prior to purchasing Queen’s Park Dental from Dr. Lyle Agar. “I see myself as a lifelong learner and endeavour to provide top notch care by participating in continuing education to learn the latest techniques,” he adds. Besides its state-of-the-art dentistry, Queen’s Park Dental is a practice with “Heart.” Dr. Murphy regularly donates to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation and has established a yearly scholarship to a graduating student at New Westminster Secondary. It doesn’t stop there. Dr. Murphy personally takes time out of his busy practice to volunteer at the British Columbia Coroners Service (BCCS) as a Forensic Odontologist. Your smile is the first thing people notice – let Queen’s Park Dental make it the best ever!

OXYGEN YOGA & FITNESS Best Yoga Studio

For anyone looking for a yoga & fitness studio that stands out from the crowd, residents in the Royal City look no further than Oxygen Yoga & Fitness. Faith Wiens, Partner and Mentor of the popular studio, and her team have built a fitness centre based on a philosophy of great service, knowledgeable and friendly staff and a commitment to fitness and health. In addition they provide yoga and fitness classes with weights, blocks, balls and bars at their studio, all at an affordable price. Oxygen Yoga & Fitness is about: “providing our members a positive space to feel inspired. Our yoga classes offer members their own space and range from Deep Stretch and Relaxation, to Freedom Flow and Yang Yin, where the infrared heat helps to enhance one’s practice.” Its fitness classes are extremely well-attended. They include some of the best and fat-busting classes such as: Power Core, Fast and Furious, Burning Butts and Cardio Barre - all guarantee to challenge and reward those who take part. When you combine a team of professional, talented and friendly instructors along with a beautiful facility, which features a temperature controlled studio that is heated with infrared

panels, you get an award-winning combination. Faith gives a lot of credit for its success to its talented team – from the instructors to front-end personnel. “Every person who works at our studio truly cares about every member that walks through the door,” she adds. “We all share the energy, dedication and commitment that our members bring to the studio each and every day.” The studio is always looking for ways to offer its members the best in fitness. To that end, less than a year ago the studio doubled its size. “We have also recently started offering workshops where members can work on perfecting their practice by learning the proper form for basic yoga poses,” adds Faith. Keeping in mind the importance of fitness to the health and wellbeing of children and teens, Oxygen Yoga & Fitness also began a teen night drop-in class, and a Buddha Buddies workshop for kids aged 9-12 that is done without the infrared heat. The goal of the studio is to be a part of the community by helping people to live healthy and active lives. It also includes giving back by supporting several local non-profit organizations and community fundraisers.

NURSE NEXT DOOR

PATTI GOSS REAL ESTATE

BUNCHES & BLOOMS FLORAL

Many “Boomers” must make decisions about their aging parents’ housing options. As our lifespan increases, many seniors are able to remain independent but others will require assistance of some sort. For many seniors, staying in their own home is the best. At Nurse Next Door Home Care Services, Wendy J. Scott, co-owner and Director of Care, understands that all too well. A registered nurse for over 41 years, she co-founded the award-winning home care business out of a very personal reason – her beloved father. After her father was discharged from hospital, Wendy suddenly realized the benefits of care delivered within the home and a Nurse Next Door home care franchise was the best way to deliver on her passion. “Nurse Next Door senior home care is not just about finding someone who can come when you need them,” she explains. “We go to great lengths to make sure we have the perfect match and will make it right if we don’t get it the first time.” Nurse Next Door brings expertise and peace of mind to families and their loved ones through a wide range of senior home care, from housekeeping to palliative care. Wendy also provides learning opportunities for seniors on a variety of topics at the Seniors Active in Living Program, Bonsor 55+ Community Centre, Century House, and Cameron Community Centre. She teaches for the Canadian Diabetes Association and provides written information on this chronic health condition. Wendy participates as a nursing consultant for an addictions rehabilitation program and for a centre for marginalized women. Wendy runs a wellness program in independent living residences. She participates in 2-3 community events a month such as Senior Fairs, the Hyack Festival, and Sapperton Days. Wendy sets up and runs multiple flu vaccine clinics throughout the fall and winter.

There are plenty of things we could tell you about Patti Goss’ long career, but what’s most important to her is that the people of New Westminster know how grateful she is. Patti has lived in New West for over forty five years and she’s been serving the city’s real estate sector since 1990. In hindsight, it was a great choice for her and opened up opportunities for further public service: Patti has been volunteering with “Meals on Wheels” for 25 years now, she was a director of the Chamber of Commerce for 10 years, spent 6 years as director of the Burnaby-New West-Tricities real estate division, and is currently on the Massey Theatre board! She also passionately sponsors several events and organizations in the city. To name a few that she has participated in lately: the Cultural Crawl for the Arts Council, the Union Gospel Mission, and sponsoring a student for the New Westminster Youth Ambassadors. Patti and her team are proud to have started a new tradition over the last couple years: With the dedicated support of their clients, friends and family, they collect hundreds of socks to keep folks warm over the winter. Over the last 2 years, they’ve donated 800 pairs to two charities. When asked what she likes most about real estate, she said it was the interactions with people. The real estate market is challenging in many ways, but she likes the great feeling of satisfaction by bringing a buyer and seller together.

Nestled in the River Market at New Westminster Quay, Bunches & Blooms Floral is renowned for delivering one-ofa-kind, custom arrangements. However, this flower shop is so much more. In addition to bouquets and centerpieces, owner and seasoned florist Robin and his team offer full floral service, including a wide selection of succulents, tropical plants, terrariums and Tillandsia Air Plants, providing excellent product knowledge and detailed care instructions with each product. It is with this passion and experience that Robin has grown Bunches & Blooms from a new studio a few years ago, into a thriving retail experience showcasing the best treasures of the natural world. Recently added products include their Bouquet of the Week Club, where flowers are delivered on a regular schedule, weekly or monthly, custom Permanent Botanicals offering life like forever florals, and European Hat Boxes showcasing beautiful hand tied bouquets. Drawing on more than three decades of experience in the industry, Robin’s designs standout from others also come from participating in local and national floral design competitions including four-time Gold Medal Winner - Vancouver Orchid Society and a Teleflora National Design Contest. “Locally, we’ve won the Reader’s Choice Awards for Best Florist in New Westminster for the fifth consecutive year and A List for several years,” he says proudly. With flowers sourced from local growers and suppliers, Bunches & Blooms creates striking arrangements for any occasion. Whether it is a joyous event such as a wedding or birth, or you are searching for unique and interesting plants, Bunches & Blooms Floral will exceed your expectations. Bunches & Blooms Floral believes in exceptional service. It is Robin’s custom designs, coupled with excellence in customer service, that have allowed Bunches & Blooms to thrive.

TRINITI LASER CLINIC AND MEDI SPA (tied) Best New Business -Under 1 Year “Make big moves” is a mantra to live by when you’re feeling confident. Triniti Laser Clinic & Medi Spa has done just that. After nearly two decades of quality service, co-owners Tina Ruggiero and Tahora Eslahian are exceedingly proud to have acquired a beautifully revitalized heritage house on Sixth street. Looking on, you would never guess that the house was now home to the leading edge of beauty and cosmetic technology. Triniti boasts a topnotch team of medical professionals, aestheticians, and body workers. Tina has over 10 years’ experience as a certified laser technician and has an extremely successful program called The Acne Free System. Tahora is actually the designated trainer for all Syneron and Candela systems in Canada and U.S. West. She’s traveled all over North America to train budding beauty technicians & doctors in laser technology.

Tina and Tahora understand beauty as an integral part of health and wellness. It’s not just about skin-deep cosmetic changes. It’s about helping their clients to feel good inside and out. Their philosophy is one which incorporates a functional relationship; not just between the mind and body, but the spirit too. The field of aesthetic medicine is always changing, but their passion for the profession keeps Triniti up to the leading minute. In a recent profile of the business, Tahora said: “We have great expertise, but we are always learning too. We want to know we always have the best techniques and tools, and that we are educated about the best ways to help our clients. We treat clients like family – if there’s a service that I wouldn’t perform on myself, or on family or my best friend, then I wouldn’t perform it on a client.”

WHITE SPOT

Best New Family Dining White Spot New Westminster has become synonymous with great service, great food and great people. Once again, local residents have proclaimed White Spot as Best Family Dining in the 2019 Reader’s Choice Awards. “We feel a great sense of pride for winning the Reader’s Choice Award” says Mathew Oommen, General Manager. Oommen says the legendary restaurant has an unbeatable combination of affordability, proximity and a menu offering something for everyone. “Another key to our success is that we promise to do whatever it takes to keep our customers happy”, says Oommen. White Spot is truly considered part of our province’s heritage and pride. According to White Spot’s story, it all started when founder Nat Bailey transformed his 1918 Model T truck into a traveling lunch counter for hungry sightseers at Vancouver’s Lookout Point. One day, as the young industrious Bailey was doing his runs, a customer leaned out of his window and asked him, “Why don’t you bring it to us?” So, Bailey hired three strapping young guys

to take orders. And thus began one of the most enduring stories of phenomenal success in the industry. Nat’s energy and his passion for service set the stage for the first White Spot drive-in, which he opened in 1928 on Granville Street at 67th avenue in Vancouver. That commitment to excellence is echoed at New Westminster White Spot, and is evident in the number of awards the location has gathered over the years. This summer, enjoy your favourite White Spot fare while taking in some sun on their great outdoor patio. For breakfast, lunch or dinner, White Spot is the place to be for great eats in a fun, casual atmosphere. White Spot New Westminster is located at #134 610 6th street in Royal City Centre with plenty of free parking. For more information, visit www.whitespot.ca or call 604-522-4800. White Spot New Westminster is open Sunday to Thursday 8am to 10pm, Friday and Saturday 8am to 10:30 pm.

QUINN WADDINGTON

CASSADY & COMPANY

ROYAL CITY PHYSIO

The most remarkable thing about Quinn Waddington’s business is the amount of goodwill surrounding it. While Quinn has been in the industry for over 11 years, Waddington Wealth has only been in business for three years now and they’ve already racked up a whole host of referrals. Plenty of New West residents come to Quinn for help and advice about their future. For many of us, thinking about finances can not only be a hassle, but positively stress inducing. That’s where Quinn comes in. He’s worked hard to shape his business into one that cares more about the client’s peace of mind than the balance of their chequebook. The point of financial planning is to take the weight of an uncertain future off your shoulders. Quinn’s goal isn’t to take control of your finances, but rather to make sure you understand your options and feel good about the direction you’re going. He will work together with you to build the right financial and investment plan for you and your family. Quinn is a New West local himself. He and his wife Liz are always looking for new ways to get involved in the community. Meeting with him, you might recognize him as a coach for the local Salmonbellies lacrosse team, or from the Royal City Rotary Club. Waddington Wealth Management Group is unaffiliated with any big banks and enjoys the freedom to be able to personalize their services and truly connect with people. In fact, Quinn just hired a new member to the team, so that he can make time/space for more local families. When we asked Quinn what his business was about, he said he worked with clients so they could live their lives and not worry about “having enough”. That’s compassion and we need more of it in the financial sector.

Since 1911, Cassady & Company has been an integral part of the community of New Westminster. As a boutique law firm, the Cassady & Company team is able to offer a whole host of legal services at a single location. Next year, partner Dorie-Anne Leggett will have been with Cassady & Company for 30 years. In spite of what has historically been a male-dominated profession, Dorie-Anne always knew she wanted to work in law. At age 16, she made her first leap of faith and obtained a position as a file clerk in a law firm downtown Vancouver. She went on to complete a double major in economics and sociology at UVIC, and then a law degree at UBC. As an employer, she maintains an open door policy, but always demands the best from herself and her staff. Teamwork is extremely important to Dorie-Anne. She believes that a characteristic of a good team is that it will always be able to complete its goals, even if some team members are absent. When asked what Cassady & Company’s strongest point is, they told us it’s their involvement in the community. The firm is steeped in New Westminster history. Cassady & Company played a large historical role in building New Westminster up to what it is today: The Cassady family were key to founding Douglas and Kwantlen Colleges, as well as the New Westminster school district and the Royal Columbia Hospital. Today they continue that tradition by sponsoring innumerable organizations around the city, as well as being members to the New West Chamber of Commerce, Burnaby Board of Trade, and the New Westminster Bar Association. Cassady & Company understands that their success is a function of New Westminster’s own; so long as the community is healthy, their clients are happy and healthy too.

Part of what makes Royal City Physio so special is the breadth of their services and clientele. One minute they might be helping a career athlete get back on the field, the next they’ll be helping a senior get back on their feet! The team’s number one priority is quality of care, no matter what the needs are. R.C. Physio’s founder, Karen Nichol, says it was her own experience as a physio client that first clued her in to what an impact a good physiotherapist can have on peoples’ lives. Karen is very proud of the young staff she’s fostered and mentored. They’re a diverse array of folks with backgrounds in kinesiology, injury management and sports-specific rehabilitation. One thing that everyone shares at Royal City Physio is a love of the outdoors, and putting their physicality to good use. Their patients will come in with any number of unique needs and goals; Karen’s team have to stay adaptable and are always accommodating. For Karen, the most satisfying part of her business is seeing the difference her team is making in the lives of locals in New Westminster. “This community is so supportive, and when we see people referring their friends, family, their children, it’s just so rewarding.” “I owe a debt of gratitude to my physiotherapist Jayme Gordon who has been an integral part of my rehabilitation after my recent total knee replacement. Jayme is very knowledgeable, and I am amazed at my progress after only 5 weeks of seeing her!” – Karen Saitowitz

ANGELA KERSLAKE

BOSLEY’S

RE/MAX ALL POINTS REALTY

Angela Kerslake is a leading practitioner of Family Law in New Westminster. In fact, she’s dedicated her sole focus to it. Angela is an experienced litigator with 3 decades experience helping people navigate one of the most logistically and emotionally challenging areas of law. Angela originally graduated from UBC’s Peter A. Allard’s School of Law and leads a two-time award-winning practice. Since 2005, her office has been located in the beautiful 1892 heritage building: Galbraith Manor. With the help of her assistant Janice, Angela has been New West’s premiere representative in divorce, family negotiation, and Court proceedings. Whether you need help with property division, child support issues, custody and access, or spousal support, the Kerslake office is there for you. They can also prepare separation agreements, marriage agreements, and cohabitation agreements. When we asked what she considered her top strengths, Angela said she was proud of her strong negotiation and litigation skills. “Her positive and excellent reputation in the New Westminster legal community is apparent when you work with her, her relationships with other business associates in the community is well-known and her ability to empathize with clients’ needs allows her to achieve the best possible results given the complexities of the court system and the many emotional demands of her clients.”

When Karima Jivraj opened Bosley’s by Pet Valu Columbia Square a little over eight years ago, she pledged to be more than a retail store. She wanted her space to be where pets and their people could come for information, support, or just a social visit. The store quickly garnered a reputation for knowledgeable, passionate staff and a strong commitment to the community. “We are a locally owned franchise store which is part of the largest pet food and supply chain in Canada,” explains Karima. This puts the team in the unique position to help others. Through Pet Appreciation Month in April, the team raised $5000 this year for the New Westminster Animal shelter, bringing the total amount contributed to approximately $14,000 for the new shelter. Over the years the store has donated $50,000 in cash and product to various shelters and rescues in BC. The team also recognizes that change begins close to home and share a total commitment to a customer-centred approach that provides the best possible solutions for pets. Karima provides extensive training for all staff around nutrition, positive and low-stress handling, and safety. The store hosts training programs and sponsors educational events to help people be the best pet parents they can be. With increased incidences of pets being left in hot cars, Bosley’s introduced a short-term pet-sitting program where customers can safely leave their pets in the store while running errands at the other Columbia Square businesses. This remarkable team and their pursuit of pet care excellence has not gone unnoticed! The store is proud to be on the Readers’ Choice list again, and this honour joins awards like Best Chain Pet Store (2019 Canadian Pet Community Awards Western Region), other accolades and nominations. With an incredible team to serve you, Bosley’s is there to meet every need your best friend might have.

LIFETIME EYECARE Best Optometrist

Lifetime Eyecare has done it yet again by being voted both “Best Optometrists” and “Best Eyeglasses” in New Westminster. Lifetime Eyecare has won both of these distinctions almost every year since 2008! How in the world do they do it?

But no eye care centre can be complete without a distinguished team of very experienced and talented eye doctors. Dr. Bachra, Dr. Zhou and Dr. Diep (Eye Specialist) work together seamlessly to give you the best care, the best service and of course effective and intelligent advice on how best to address your vision health concerns.

ROYAL CITY PAWS PET CENTRE

THE TANNING STUDIO

DAIRY QUEEN

New Westminster is full of beautiful, furry friends. A weekend trip to the boardwalk will confirm that our community loves its pets. But who do we have to thank for our lush animal playmates. Royal City Paws have consistently won our Best Groomer award for 3 years running. Dr. Alberto Schlicht and Dr. Kayla Stinn are the resident veterinarians at Paws. Dr. Schlicht is also experienced in advanced veterinary dentistry; he’ll have your pets going from grimace to grin in no time. Given their gratitude to the community, Royal City Paws do their utmost to give back. On August 18th, Paws will be working with the New West Animal Shelter for their annual Community Pet Outreach at Moody Park, 11am-1:30pm. They’ll be donating the labour-time of their expert groomers to trim nails and clean ears, as well as contributing pet food supplies. No matter what the income of their owner, R.C. Paws believes pets should be loved and cared for. Kelly Savela has been passionately working in the veterinary field for over 20 years. After managing a veterinary hospital for 8 years, Kelly decided it was time to start her own practice. Since then, Royal City Paws has become a household name for pet-families. In 2018, Kelly personally won Entrepreneur of the Year from Douglas College for the exceptional feedback and referrals she’s received for her business. “We want everyone, either two legged or four, to feel welcome as soon as they enter our facility.” The whole team at R.C. Paws is in love with their pets. They know these animals are more than our constant companions; they’re family who deserve respect and kindness. You can bet on their treating even the most rambunctious of animals with equal compassion. Stop by next time you pass the office to receive a warm greeting, and a tasty treat.

For many in New Westminster there is only once place to go for tanning, the three year in a row Readers Choice award-winning salon, The Tanning Studio. Opened since 2009, the salon offers several lotions for clients’ unique wants and needs. “For those who are more focussed on holistic skin care and fitness, our Beauty Angel Red Light Therapy is perfect,” says Owner/ Operator Chantal Dawes. “For those looking for a flawless spray tanning experience, we have the Versa Spa with our very own TTS Glow clear and bronze solutions and also offer handheld air brush tanning.” The Tanning Studio has also added a Cocoon Wellness Pod, the first in BC. The Cocoon is a whole body Infrared Dry Heat Sauna which naturally promotes Automatic Weight Loss. It’s great for pre and post workouts and helps with muscle strength, endurance and flexibility while increasing your metabolic rate. There are several benefits to sunbathing, including improved appearance, enhanced mood, and increased vitamin D levels. The Tanning Studio showcases a variety of sun beds - everything from a level 2 to 5. Chantal explains that Level 2 provides more UVB to produce vitamin D, while Level 4 is a seven-minute stand-up for those on the go and is the only one in New Westminster. Level 5 is a high-pressure bed which offers more UVA browning rays. The Tanning Studio experience begins the moment you walk in the door and are warmly greeted by one of its courteous and professional employees, all of whom are Smart Tan certified. Meanwhile, Chantal comes to the industry armed with 18 years of experience, including 15 as an air brush artist. Smart Tan certified, she managed several salons before realizing her dream of owning her own.

There’s something undeniably soothing about a Dairy Queen. It’s an oasis in time; you get the feeling nothing’s changed there in decades. Just beside the New Westminster Library and a 2 minute walk from Moody Park, the Dairy Queen on the corner of 6th Ave. and 7th St. has been a fixture of the New West community. They’ve been serving delicious treats for over 50 years. Since 1989, this particular franchise has been owned and run by two generations of the Sams family. Over the last 3 decades, their business has woven into the fabric of the city. The Sams’ DQ is increasingly making an effort to give back and sponsor causes in New West. DQ is a major contributor to the BC Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network, having raised over $50, 000 for the charity. Giving back to the community has not only benefitted those in need in New Westminster, it’s also been very edifying for the Sams’ children. When asked about their management philosophy, the Sams said they aim to employ good people who just happen to work at Dairy Queen. Their franchise is very family-oriented, and has several regular patrons. Many of them are on a firstname basis. In fact, the Sams’ 2nd generation pride themselves on getting to know those regulars and their orders. They know that the extra effort is worth it to feel embedded in the community. They’re even planning to start a delivery service come this fall. Dairy Queen is proud to offer great value, providing hot food and dessert combos for as low as $7 meals.

ANGELINA’S RESTAURANT

Best Breakfast, Brunch & Sunday Brunch 2019 has been a year of change for us at Angelina’s Dutch Corner. We experienced high growth and so many customer queues that had us expanding and busting at the seams in more ways than one! So, when a new larger space became available just steps away at the Quay, we jumped on it immediately and signed our names on the lease. After much sweat and hard work on the interior design and renovations, we were finally ready to open. This space is now an amazing 3 times larger with an outdoor patio that is big enough to seat 34. Talk about amazing views! We had a very successful Grand Opening week earlier this year with a Ribbon Cutting ceremony on the 23rd. We like to think that this new look better reflects our continued commitment to our

many loyal local customers at the Quay, and with out of town visitors. With our new, larger space we are able to serve more customers with our signature Dutch pannekoek, waffles and pancakes, in addition to our famous omelettes, breakfast plates and sandwiches. We are also able to offer fresh espressos, lattes and cappuccinos. Everything is still made in-house from scratch with the freshest local produce and ingredients. Even though our new space is larger, we still think of ourselves as the family friendly restaurant on the Quay that serves fresh food at great prices in a casual atmosphere. And we encourage customers to come back again and again along with their family and friends. The full menu can be downloaded and viewed on angelinasdutchcorner.ca.

FOREMED CLINIC

HYACK FESTIVAL

MICHELLE DUPRÉ DESIGN & CO.

One of the most sought-after services in the city is a family doctor. Getting a-hold of an available and dependable doctor is worth its weight in gold; that’s why Foremed clinic is quickly becoming the go-to walk-in for New Westminster. Conveniently located just across the street from Columbia Sky-Train Station, Foremed clinic has been taking care of city denizens for over a decade. Dr. Jinu Mathew and his team of 5 family doctors, a cardiologist, and a specialist of internal medicine are working on making themselves ever more accessible to their patients. To improve the delivery of their care, a Nurse and Nurse practitioner have been added to the practice. The clinic now offers Virtual Visits wherein a patient can conduct an appointment with Dr. Mathew right from their computer screen. The clinic understands that most people with a busy workweek haven’t got time to meet in the day. Thus, Foremed has extended its hours for just such patients and they have started emailing patients through secure communication and offer online appointment booking. They also offer a convenient EMR system that allows doctors to get immediate consult reports and test results. When asked how else they contribute to the New Westminster community, Foremed said they aim to address the physical and emotional well being of our city through compassionate medical care. “Dr. Mathew is the best doctor I’ve seen here in Lower Mainland. He was my doctor when I moved from Alberta and I Liked him immediately. He left for a bit to work at the Hospital and I’m so thankful he’s back. I trust him with my health and find him very knowledgeable and willing to refer to specialist if required.” They are currently accepting new patients!

One of the longest running non-profit arts and cultural festivals in British Columbia has achieved another Readers’ Choice award, two years in a row! The 48th Annual Hyack Festival, as proclaimed by the Mayor in City Hall Chambers each year has become a well attended week-long traditional celebration, featuring multicultural activities for all ages, free live performances by well-known Vancouver based Indie artists, great food, as well as the highly proclaimed Hyack International Parade. Lili De Capite, 48th President with the multiple award-winning Hyack Festival Association, gives credit to their amazing volunteers - from directors, past presidents, members and event co-ordinators, who year after year, come and support this popular community event. She believes the success is also linked to festival attendees’ interest on traditional themes such as New Westminster being nicknamed the Royal City, a place of significant history, and a proud landmark of preserved heritage. Hyack Festival Association represents New Westminster in many communities throughout the province and Pacific Northwest by participating in parades and other events. In 2019, the brand new Hyack Float, Themed “Shining Bright in the Royal City” along with the dedicated Float Team and car fleet were awarded International Awards in Portland, Olympia, Steveston and White Rock. In addition, the association strives to keep the festival alive by following modern trends. Hyack is fully invested in the community, and continue to invite new partnerships opportunities with local stakeholders. “We are always striving to become more accessible through social media and making sure residents know that the Hyack Festival Association is inclusive and fully embraces our diverse population,” Lili explains. “Keep up to date with our upcoming activities and events at hyackfestival.com or LIKE us on Facebook.”
