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.
As the oldest incorporated City in BC and the first capital of the Province, New Westminster has its historic evolution from pioneer settlement as a destination point along the gold rush route. New Westminster evolved into a stately Victorian city as is reflected in the fine period architecture of several commercial, residential and institutional buildings. The fortunes of the City have ebbed and flowed ever since the city started in 1859. Today, New Westminster is renowned for an excellent collection of Victorian and Edwardian buildings in all neighbourhoods of the City.
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.
