West Nile

West Nile Virus - CrowWest Nile Virus - MosquitoWest Nile

Virus (WNV) is a mosquito-borne illness that began spreading westward across North America in 1999. It has since spread to all continental US states, including California and Oregon in 2005, and seven Canadian provinces including Alberta.
To prepare for WNV, the municipalities which form the Greater Vancouver Regional District are taking a coordinated approach to ensure that preventative measures are in place on public lands.

The City of Burnaby has been actively involved in WNV mosquito management since 2003.  For up-to-date WNV-related information in Burnaby, please phone our 24-hour automated telephone line at 604-294-7597. You can read our Information on the West Nile Virus (City of Burnaby) brochure for more information.
