Fire Contained On Burnaby Mountain

Posted 1:50 PM July 5, 2015

The Burnaby Fire Department has contained a small brush fire that broke out this morning on the north slope of Burnaby Mountain. Crews will be maintaining a presence in the area for the duration.

No evacuation orders have been issued. Residents affected by the smoke are to close their windows or may choose to leave the area. Delays and rerouting for transit services are expected due to road closures in the area. Using the hiking trails are not recommended at the moment. Park users are reminded to use care and attention during these extreme fire danger conditions. Please visit the Simon Fraser University Road Report web page for updated information.

Air Quality Advisory

Metro Vancouver has issued an Air Quality Advisory for Metro Vancouver because of high concentrations of fine particulate matter and potential health impacts, due to smoke from wildfires outside our region. This advisory is expected to continue until there is a change in the current weather.

Bylaws

What is a Bylaw?

Municipal bylaws are public regulatory laws which apply in a given area of the City.  Within its jurisdiction and specific to those areas mandated by the higher body, a municipal bylaw is no different than any other law. It can be enforced with penalties, challenged in court and it must comply with all other laws of BC and Canada.

How are Bylaws Enforced?

Municipal bylaws are often enforceable through the public justice system.

Council gets the power to pass bylaws through the Community Charter, which specifies what the city may regulate through bylaws. 

Burnaby Bylaws

The Office of the City Clerk maintains our municipal bylaws. Common bylaws include vehicle parking and stopping regulations, animal control, building and construction, licensing, noise, zoning and business regulation and management of public recreation areas.
