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.

Council Reports 2018 | 2017

Burnaby is a vibrant city at the geographic centre of Metro Vancouver. It has an amazing natural environment, a strong cultural mosaic and thriving town centres.

As a City, we provide facilities and services that support a safe, connected, inclusive, healthy and dynamic community. The City works collaboratively with residents, businesses, organizations and other governments. We are proud of our accomplishments, and are driven to improve our services.

This strategic plan is founded upon and guided by the goals that the City of Burnaby has established through a series of forward-thinking, long-term plans. The Council-adopted trilogy of sustainability strategies (socialenvironmental and economic), the Official Community Plan and other City policies establish the planning and resource context for our work.

This plan is the result of the collaborative efforts of City Council and staff. The goals outlined in this plan will be used to guide City staff in delivering services, setting priorities and developing programs. The principles and goals of this plan will be reflected in the City’s Annual Financial Plan and other City plans. Specific projects and initiatives will continue to be developed to move the City toward the vision and goals identified in this strategic plan.
