New West Matters

New West Matters is an ongoing series of virtual conversations and activities designed to help maintain and build community connections online while opportunities for in person engagement are limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Over the coming months, a series of livestream events, social media interactions and other activities will provide further opportunities for residents to connect with and hear from the City of New Westminster and Mayor and Council. It will provide opportunities to discuss both specific issues and City initiatives, as well as allow residents to make suggestions, ask questions and offer comments on anything that matters to them.

New West Matters will include innovative and fun ways to let you tell us what’s important to you. We want to know how life is going for you in New Westminster and if you have any questions or suggestions for us. We want to make connections and help everyone in New West feel welcome and included in City processes.

New West Matters events and activities are currently being planned for the spring, summer and fall of 2021. Further event details will be announced soon.
