Who are we?

The Downtown New Westminster Business Improvement Area (BIA) serves approximately 600 members (both businesses and property owners) between the Pattullo Bridge, Royal Avenue, the Riverfront and the lower 12th commercial area.  

As a small non-profit society, the BIA has a very collaborative culture, where many responsibilities are shared among a small number of staff.  No task is too big or too small for any member of the team and as a team we find ways of making most tasks an entertaining experience!

The BIA offers a supportive, stimulating and fun work environment complemented by a team of dedicated, hard-working volunteer Board of Directors. Those working at the BIA have an opportunity to contribute in a variety of ways, for a purpose that is very meaningful to our members and to the community at large. 

Who are you?

You are creative, fun, social, and really passionate about marketing, exploring and engaging Downtown New West. You are interested in attending local events, building relationships with local businesses, and have the ability to become "in the know" about the latest and greatest happenings here.  You have some experience, but are looking to build more, learn more, and contribute more as time goes on.
