This project pilots the National Industrial Symbiosis Program (NISP) in the City of New Westminster and investigates its impact on growing and developing important synergies between businesses. Based on the results, it recommends that the City should consider continuing to support NISP Canada, given the strong alignment between the NISP model and the City of New Westminster policy goals, strategies and action items, as well as foster greater collaboration with municipalities for a regional circular economy.
