Sustainable City

The City of Burnaby’s vision as a livable, sustainable, and thriving City provides a roadmap for the future. For several years, Burnaby has been working toward this goal through the implementation of three award-winning city plans — economic, social and environmental to complement our Community Development Plans and Corporate Strategic Plan.

These initiatives create a sound strategic policy direction for the future and provide a foundation for the continued strengthening of Burnaby’s overall well-being, enhancing our status as a liveable, vibrant and sustainable community; a place that facilitates an engaged and active citizenry, a healthy economy and a strong respect for the natural environment.
