A Message from Mayor Mike Hurley

To My Fellow Burnaby Residents:

On July 8, I had the opportunity to deliver the annual State of the City Address to a limited live audience at the Delta Hotel.

This isn’t the first time I’ve had the honour of delivering this speech, but given all the challenges we’ve faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, this speech was especially meaningful to me.

Throughout the pandemic, our community has shown resilience, compassion and adaptability. Our frontline healthcare workers saved lives, and essential staff kept our community moving forward. Getting the opportunity to thank them as we continue to move forward with our recovery and restart plan was a great feeling.
But we aren’t just looking to return to normal.

This is a time to aspire to something even better.

There are more challenges in the years ahead as we navigate climate change, transform the way we travel throughout the City and continue to tackle the housing crisis head on. Solving these issues will require us to rethink the way we live, but in doing so, we have the opportunity to build an even better Burnaby.

Meantime, we are beginning to see the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. The provincial State of Emergency ended on June 30, and the City’s own Emergency Operations Centre has shut down after being active for more than 480 days.

Life is gradually returning to normal. It remains important for all of us to remain vigilant, and to encourage friends and family who have not yet got their vaccinations to do so as soon as possible. Visit for information on how to register for an appointment. 

When it comes to overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change or any other issue we may face, success depends upon us all working together.

Mayor Mike Hurley
