Sister + Friendship Cities

A truly diverse community, our citizens celebrate the multicultural fabric of New Westminster. Over the years, that celebration has taken many forms, including establishing “Sister-city” and “Friendship-city” status with cities across the Pacific Ocean. These important ties are built on mutual friendship and respect and promote economic development and cultural exchange opportunities for both partners.
