Business in Burnaby

Burnaby's financial position remains very strong, boding well for the future of our businesses and citizens. Debt-free and with relatively low taxation rate, we are the rock solid foundation for business in our community. Prudent financial practices including financial reserves and strong methodology to assess long-term financial health helped lead to the City being named "Best Run City in Canada" by Maclean's magazine.
