Contact The Record

The New Westminster Record is your go-to choice for news coverage in print and online 24/7 with breaking news, informed opinions and stories that will enlighten you about our community.

The Royal City Record was first published on Oct. 1, 1981 as an eight-page broadsheet newspaper. The newspaper’s founders believed that the city deserved a paper that was dedicated to the oldest city in western Canada. The paper has grown to now be distributed to more than 16,000 homes and businesses in the city on Thursdays. The Record is your news leader with more than 40 fresh stories posted each day – from news to community to entertainment to features to sports. This dedication to our work has led to the Record in 2019 being named Canada’s Best Overall Newspaper in our circulation class by the Canadian Community Newspaper Association, as well as winning the Ma Murray Award for Best Overall Newspaper in our circulation class in both 2018 and 2019.

To assist our crack team of seasoned journalists, we also rely on our readers to tell us what stories are important to them and why.

So contact us and let us know about a great story idea or give some feedback on how we’re doing.
