Become a New West Anchor Insider Member

A New West Anchor Insider membership is for anyone who wants to learn about their community, their neighbours, and themselves.

It's for anyone who believes that New Westminster is a diverse, fascinating, exciting place and that learning about this place will help us continue to make it better. The Anchor is dedicated to producing a twice-weekly newsletter and journalism focused on informing our community, sharing its successes, and demonstrating how it can continue to grow, evolve, and improve.

And it’s only $8.25 per month (on an annual membership).

An Anchor membership means you're playing your part in that. But it also provides a convenient and easy way to discover more about your community.

Beyond our 2x weekly newsletters and web stories, members will gain access to:

Every piece of journalism we publish

We’re known for our community storytelling and local reporting. Members will get full access to everything.

Food and drink recommendations

Discover new places to eat and drink in New West, all highlighted in the newsletters.

All the events

Want to know what’s going on in our community? Members get exclusive access to all our event listings, concert and event announcements, and a special weekly roundup just before the weekend hits.

A special weekend edition newsletter

We get it. You’re busy, and you’re not going to read every email in your inbox. So we’ll send you an email every Saturday with a roundup of our key stories, crucial stories and events you might’ve missed from the past week. Great for a sleepy Saturday (or Sunday).

As a member, you'll play a key role in the continued existence and growth of New West’s most ambitious and dynamic media outlet. We can't do this without you. But we can do A LOT with you.


Is an Anchor Insider membership tax deductible?

Not yet, but it should be soon! One of our sister publications has been approved for the federal digital news subscription tax credit, which gets you 15% back. Once approved, an NWA Insider membership will drop down to just $7.01 monthly (or just $1.62 per week!).

Thank you to some of our amazing members 🫶 

I like reading the Anchor and have learned more about New West and have lived here for over 25 years. Still learning and that's why I support you.

I subscribed to you guys because I'm relatively new to New West and would love to find out about new events and stuff happening! I also think it's important to have local publications like the New West Anchor because New West is a bit different from the rest of the Lower Mainland and it's great to have better tailored news and events!

- Matthew R

I became a member because I think local reporting is of value, and I’m happy to chip in a bit to support it.

I’m looking forward to the New West Anchor becoming a fixture in our community.

How else can we sustain local media and community accountability without supporting it?

- Shawn S

I enjoy your publication and have been reading since I learned about it at a Pecha Kucha event. Trust by supporting you financially you’ll soar to greater heights. Local matters, matter.

I became a member because I consider the NW Anchor to be an objective, unbiased news source about topics that interest or are important to residents of New Westminster.

I’m so happy to be a member I’ve learned more things about New Westminster since I started reading your emails. Most of the articles I read from NWA are positive & informative especially when you tell is about a business in town. Glad to know what is out there in New West.
