Local Government Awareness Week

May 19-23, 2014 is Local Government Awareness Week in B.C. This week helps you ‘get to know’ your local government, and to learn more about the many programs and services that the City of Burnaby provides.

The 2014 theme of the week is: Your Voice Counts! Be Involved Burnaby. As voting is one important part of civic involvement, the November 2014 Municipal Election is a focus of the week.
