Building Burnaby's Community Safety Plan

Community Safety Plan Image

Help us build a safer city, together! The City is developing its first-ever Community Safety Plan. The goal is to build on our strengths and seeks opportunities for us to grow into an even safer city.

We hope you’ll join us as we explore how we can keep our community safe and maintain a high quality of life for current and future residents.  Once complete, the Community Safety Plan will be a high-level strategic plan to help guide the decisions of the City and community partners about community safety initiatives for years to come. 

Get Involved!

Your input is important and will help shape the new Community Safety Plan.
