Housing

Housing is a key element of a sustainable community. Burnaby supports a range of housing opportunities through its regulatory powers, which determine the location and type of housing that can be built in the City, and through policies and programs that encourage development of affordable and special needs housing. Burnaby advocates to senior levels of government on housing issues, and works with government, non-profit and private sector partners to deliver more housing.
