Welcome to Burnaby

Outdoor oasis meets urban centre

Located in the centre of Metro Vancouver, Burnaby offers easy access to the rest of the lower mainland. Served by transit with multiple Skytrain stations and bus stops, Burnaby is a great place for commuters.

The City of Burnaby says that 25% of the land is dedicated to parks and open spaces and you can see that reflected in the number of outdoor recreation spaces (including 200 parks spaces!) throughout the city. This makes Burnaby's ratio of parkland to residents one of the highest in North America. From hiking Burnaby Mountain to enjoying a day by the lake at Deer Lake or Burnaby Lake, there is plenty of outdoor fun for the whole family. Sports players and fans can enjoy the golf courses, tennis club, arenas and winter clubs, and other sports facilities.

There are plenty of shopping options in Burnaby, from Metrotown (BC's largest shopping centre), the newly revitalized Brentwood Mall, Lougheed Town Centre, The Heights, and Crystal Mall. You'll also find a wide selection of food options, from bars and chain restaurants to cosier venues and authentic worldwide cuisine.

Residents and visitors can experience Burnaby's cultural scene at the art galleries, museums and performing arts spaces.

Burnaby is also home to many students, housing both the main Simon Fraser University and BCIT campuses.

Homes in Burnaby are primarily "attached", meaning apartments, condos, townhouses and duplexes make up the majority of the homes in the city. There are about 20,000 detached homes in Burnaby and many are the "Mid-Century Vernacular" homes built during the suburbanization of the city. Close to 60% of homes in Burnaby are owned and 35% are rented.

Burnaby is one of the most ethnically diverse areas in the lower mainland, with over half the population reporting their first language as one other than English or French.
