Committees are one of the ways the City of New Westminster includes residents in its work. The City has several committees, commissions, boards, and other advisory groups (like task forces and working groups) to provide Council and staff with external expertise and lived experience on strategic priorities and other key issues.

Committees provide residents with an opportunity the engage with the City on an ongoing basis, and in a deeper way than other public engagement activities. The City benefits by having access to people with lived experience and residents’ perspectives that may be missing from Council and/or staff.
