Submit a Letter to Council

If you wish to submit a letter on a specific topic to be placed on a Council agenda, it must be received in the Office of the City Clerk by noon on the Wednesday prior to the Council meeting. Your letter must be addressed to:

Mayor and Council
c/o Office of the City Clerk
4949 Canada Way
Burnaby, BC   V5G 1M2 | Map

You may also fax your letter to 604-294-7537, or email to clerks@burnaby.ca. Your letter must be signed and include your name and address. (Please note that all correspondence submitted to the City of Burnaby will form part of the public record and will be published when this matter is before Council or a Committee of Council. The City considers the author’s address relevant to Council’s consideration of this matter and will disclose this personal information. However, the author’s phone number and email address are not required and should be omitted if the author does not wish this personal information disclosed.)

There may be occasions when your letter doesn't appear on an agenda when you think it should. This may be because a staff report is being prepared in response to your concerns and your letter will be placed on the same agenda as the staff report; it may be that your concerns are better addressed by a Council Committee and your letter is being directed to the appropriate Committee; or your letter may contain information which is not suitable for a public agenda and will be dealt with on a confidential basis.
