Commission Meetings

Commission meetings are open to the public. During commission meetings, public delegations are heard, correspondence is received and reports are presented by staff. Members then discuss the issues raised, debate and vote. Regular commission meetings are held in the City Hall Council Chambers. Community commission meetings are held right in your neighbourhood and are followed by a question-and-answer period along with coffee and a chance to chat with the commissioners.


The City of Burnaby Parks Recreation and Culture Commission may hear three delegations per Commission meeting. Each delegation is given ten minutes to make their presentation to the Commission, after which the Commission members may ask questions or comment on the information presented. Delegations are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Once the three delegation limit is met, additional requests are put forward to the next available Commission meeting. In order to appear as a delegation before the Commission, you must submit a written request addressed to the Chair and Members of the Commission. Letters to appear as a delegation should be forwarded to the Commission Secretary.
