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.

Youth and Youth Engagement

The City of Burnaby recognizes youth as active partners and participants in the development and delivery of youth services and other City initiatives. The involvement of youth with the City is led by the Burnaby Civic Youth Policy.

Youth recreation and community involvement is supported through three City-operated youth centres and a youth lounge. The City is also advised by the youth led 'Youth Voice' committee, which gives input on a wide range of civic issues that impact youth. New members are always welcome. For more information email socialplanning@burnaby.ca.

The many contributions of young people in our community are celebrated every year during Burnaby Youth Week, held annually in May, and through the Youth Week Citizenship Awards.
