Draft Sanctuary City Policy

The City of New Westminster is currently working on a policy that is intended to support New Westminster residents with uncertain, precarious, undocumented or no immigration status to access City facilities, programs and services without fear that staff will ask for information about their immigration status and/or provide information about their immigration status to other institutions or orders of government.

We are seeking feedback on the draft policy. If you were not able to join us at a community open house, please take our online survey and tell us what you think!
