“New West” is western Canada’s oldest city and was BC’s first capital. Named by Queen Victoria, the "Royal City" combines a modern urban waterfront with a core of historic brick and stone buildings and homes.
While in New Westminster visit Irving House, the restored 1865 home of steamboat captain William Irving, "the king of the river", with Gothic Revival architecture and authentic furnishings. Next door at the New Westminster Museum and Archives, view vintage coins, photos, and other artifacts, and learn about the British Army's Royal Engineers, who built New Westminster.
For military aficionados, there's the Museum of the Royal Westminster Regiment, a local army unit that fought in both World Wars. The recently expanded Fraser River Discovery Centre brings to life the environmental and economic impact of BC's longest river.
And for a little outdoor fun, visit Queen's Park (First St. and Third Ave.) which is the largest of New Westminster's 48 city parks. Especially for families with children, it's worth exploring with its petting zoo, adventure playgrounds, water spray park, and sports fields. The Friendship Gardens in Queen's Park commemorates New Westminster's sister city relationship with Moriguchi, Japan.
To end a truly memorable time visit the New Westminster Police Museum, where visitors can check out a 1958 Harley Davidson motorcycle or be photographed in a replica jail cell.

Finally, an accredited pediatric massage certification program for healthcare professionals who wish to expand their practice by providing massage therapy and nurturing touch for pediatric clients. The Liddle Kidz Foundation Certification course is an intense, fun and effective way to master the core skills of pediatric massage.
Founded by master teacher and philanthropist Tina Allen, the Liddle Kidz Foundation offers a new, comprehensive, research based training course and teaches students what they really need to know to provide pediatric massage.
Any experienced professional will tell you that there is a world of difference between learning how to massage a child from a book or DVD, and knowing how to provide the best care to meet a child’s needs, however, there are few opportunities to learn the skills they really need from a working healthcare professional who has provided pediatric massage education throughout the world.
As a CPMT, you have the special opportunity to provide specialized care through touch therapy to children who need it most.
