The Fraser River Discovery Centre (FRDC) was established in 1989 with a vision to connect communities in the discovery and celebration of the living, working Fraser River. The FRDC operates an interpretive centre in New Westminster and offers a variety of programs for school groups and the public. Our mission is to bring together the many voices of the Fraser to discover, celebrate, and inspire passionate stewards of the river.
In 2020, the FRDC signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Musqueam with the intent of developing the Centre into xʷtatəl̕ləm , a Place of Learning about the Indigenous heritage and teachings of the river.
