    Since 2014, UNBC Continuing Studies has been offering awe-struck adventurers rare access to seldom-visited historic sites, remarkable wildlife, and stunning natural scenery that is distinctly Northern British Columbia.

    The staff are passionate about providing rare opportunities and one-of-a-kind travel experiences and want you to leave our tours with a vast understanding of the region’s diverse history and memories to last a lifetime.

    Witness grizzly bears feeding on sedge grass, learn about historic First Nations sites, roam through abandoned ghost towns, discover old trade routes and transportation methods, or take part in a biological study of ancient river sturgeon. Combining the knowledge of local experts with exclusive access to unique destinations and activities, Continuing Studies’ not-for credit tours will leave you with a spectacular story that is all your own.

    TGIF in New West this summer with "Fridays on Front", a brand new weekly night market experience in Downtown New West!

    Historic Front Street has undergone a significant upgrade over the past few years as part of a new riverfront vision. The City of New Westminster removed part of the parkade and reconstructed Front Street into a modern, pedestrian friendly mews which officially opens on Friday, July 7th.

    Fridays on Front will run every Friday evening for eight consecutive weeks (July 7 – August 25) on the 600-block of Front Street.

    The family friendly market will feature artisan vendors from the New West Farmers Market and New West Craft, live music from the New Westminster Arts Council, and of course, our favourite Food Trucks form the Columbia StrEAT Food Truck Fest.
