Civic Engagement

Burnaby welcomes citizens to be involved with their City. A range of volunteer opportunities exist including on civic Boards and Committees, through Citizen Support Services, in Community Policing initiatives and for the Burnaby Emergency Program.

Community Volunteering

General community volunteer opportunities can be found through Volunteer Burnaby. Burnaby citizens are also welcome to volunteer on the Burnaby Early Childhood Development Community Table, the Burnaby Food First Committee, and the Voices of Burnaby Seniors.


The contributions of Burnaby residents to their community are celebrated by the City through the annual Kushiro Cup presentation to Burnaby's outstanding citizen of the year and the bi-annual Local Hero Awards.


City Connect keeps you informed, online and in print, about City of Burnaby initiatives, programs and upcoming events.
