The City of New Westminster is proud to have been ranked # 2 in “BC’s Most Economically Resilient Cities” rankings by BC Business magazine and is the top community in Metro Vancouver. This is an honour we share with the local business community, which has demonstrated resiliency, adaptability, and genuine caring for the community.
New Westminster residents are keen to support and shop local, a key to the success of the local economy and part of why businesses are attracted here. Other factors that contributed to the ranking include population growth, low residential GHG emissions, more affordable housing options and a diverse economy.
