Environmental Planning

The City of Burnaby places a high importance on the protection and enhancement of our environment and the health of ecosystems including forests, lakes, wetlands and streams. These ecosystems provide fish and wildlife habitat, recreational and aesthetic assets, purify the air and water and protect human health.

Guided by the City’s Environmental Policies and Regulations, environmental protection and enhancement opportunities are considered in all major plans and development in the City, including revisions to Community Plans, and applications for rezoning and subdivision.


As a result of many decades of work, the City has achieved many successes in environmental planning, including:

  • Environmental Sustainability Strategy
