New Westminster (population 60,000) celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2009, and is Canada's oldest incorporated city west of the Great Lakes. 

This tight-knit, friendly community is best known for its historic and heritage sites, annual festivals, shopping opportunities, diverse neighbourhoods and handy proximity to Vancouver.

In fact, New Westminster sits at the geographic centre of Metro Vancouver on a hillside overlooking the Fraser River. In 1859, Queen Victoria of England named New Westminster after the City of Westminster in England, and it's still known as the "Royal City."
