Hot Weather in Store for Southwestern BC

Posted July 13, 2018

While hot and sunny conditions are welcomed news for most, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Medical Health Officers are reminding residents to take precautions to protect themselves from the heat. Keep cool by:

  • Spending time in an air-conditioned facility (such as a shopping centre, library, community centre or restaurant) for at least several hours every day.
  • Dress for the weather by wearing loose, light-weight clothing. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • Avoid sunburn, stay in the shade or use sunscreen with SPF 30 or more
  • NEVER leave children or pets alone in a parked car.
  • Check in on others - People living alone are at high risk of severe heat related illness.

Adjudication Process

For Burnaby Violation Notices:  The City of Burnaby’s Bylaw Dispute Adjudication System manages Notices of Bylaw Violation in Burnaby. This is Bylaw No. 12657, the Bylaw Notice Enforcement Bylaw, under the Local Government Bylaw Notice Enforcement Act - [SBC 2003] Chapter 60.

These Bylaws and our Manager's Report from June 30 2008 will provide you with in-depth information on Adjudication.

What is Adjudication?

The Adjudication system allows the City to manage bylaw disputes locally rather than through the Provincial Court system. Violation notices can be disputed out of court with a private adjudicator appointed by the Provincial Attorney General Office.
