Burnaby Community Safety Plan

Community Safety Plan Image

In 2020, the City of Burnaby approved its first-ever Community Safety Plan, a strategic document aimed at improving the health, safety and well-being of Burnaby residents.

Every day, the City of Burnaby is engaged in multiple different projects which make our community a safer, healthier place to live. 

Improving public safety involves many different departments. Burnaby’s Community Safety Plan offers a clear picture of all our ongoing safety initiatives, and outlines plans for the future.

How did we develop a Community Safety Plan?

More than 1,400 Burnaby residents helped shape this plan through a massive public engagement process. 

Through meetings, workshops, kitchen-table conversations, pop-up events and an online survey, they were asked to envision what community safety should look and feel like in the future.

Using feedback from residents, the plan aims to improve community safety in five key areas:

  • Community amenity safety
  • Crime prevention and reduction
  • Transportation safety
  • Emergency services
  • Emergency preparedness

What’s next?

We’re preparing the action plan to guide staff resources as we move forward with projects and initiatives outlined in the Community Safety Plan.

Every year, the City of Burnaby will review the Community Safety Plan to ensure it responds to the changing needs of our community.
