Active, engaged and accessible
Located at the heart of Metro Vancouver, New Westminster is less than 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver, YVR, and the US border. With five SkyTrain stations, New West is easily accessed by public transit, and has industrial connections via river, road, and rail.
Businesses that locate here enjoy competitive lease rates and a strong, supportive community. New Westminster continues to make the cost of doing business even more attractive in a number of ways, including participation in an inter-municipal business licence program, which provides a more affordable licencing option for businesses involved in construction and maintenance of buildings and properties.
As Western Canada’s original city, New Westminster has a history of creating opportunity and setting trends. Businesses and residents today have access to BridgeNet, a city-owned fibre network that creates opportunities for multiple internet service providers to offer high speed internet access at competitive rates.
Recently, New Westminster was awarded SMART21 status by the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) for its work meeting the demand of the broadband economy and in growing a prosperous and digitally-inclusive community. It was chosen from a global list of 400 cities.
Supported by an active and engaged economic development office and bolstered by its reputation as a central, competitive and progressive community, the City of New Westminster is an ideal location for business to thrive and grow.
