To assist the bishop with pastoral care and administration, dioceses are divided into smaller regional groupings known as Archdeaconries and Regional Deaneries, under the leadership of an Archdeacon and Regional Dean, respectively. In the Diocese of New Westminster, there are six Archdeaconries and eleven Regional Deaneries.

On June 7, 2021, an updated document covering in detail the roles of ordained regional leadership was released for posting. A .PDF of the document, "The Roles of Regional Archdeacons and Regional Deans" is linked here.
