Queensborough is a community in the City of New Wesminster, located at the eastern end of Lulu Island. Originally, a farming community, Queensborough became an industrial area in the early 20th century, housing a variety of sawmills, shipyards and fisheries. With the decline of the industries in British Columbia, Queensborough has become a desireable neighbourhood, featuring various types of housing, an elementary school, middle school and community centre.
