Snow and Ice Removal Continues

Posted January 16, 2017

City crews and equipment will be working this week to:

  • Clear catch basins in anticipation for this week’s thawing and rainfall events
  • Clear wheelchair ramps and bus stops of compacted snow and ice
  • Sweep and clear main roadways and priority routes of sand abrasives

Remove snow from catch basins and storm drains. Keeping catch basins and storm drains on your street clear of snow helps prevent flooding when snow melts. Report problems to our 24-hour service line at 604-294-7200.

Locate catch basins using the Burnaby Map:

  1. Select Layers button
  2. Expand Engineering Operations option > Infrastructure
  3. Select Storm > Catchbasin > Zoom into your street

Motorists are advised to be prepared for changing road conditions. Attention should be paid to water pooling around roadways due to forecasted rainfall this week.

Hazardous conditions, downed trees, potholes, and localized flooding can be reported to our 24-hour Emergency Dispatch at 604-294-7200. Non-emergency requests can be reported to 604-294-7460. We appreciate your patience as we work towards removing snow and ice in as many areas as possible. View Snow and Ice Control Information and Our Role as a City.

The Artist Poster Show

Artist Poster Show

February 8-April 7, 2013

The Burnaby Art Gallery is pleased to present The Artist Poster Show, an exhibition exploring the didactic evolution of artist exhibition posters. Drawn primarily from the Burnaby Art Gallery’s permanent collection, the showcase spotlights the artist’s ability to communicate time, place, symbolism or space though an exhibition poster.

See works by artists like the eccentric Gilbert and George, the explosive international feminist group Guerrilla Girls, the beloved Canadian painter Jack Shadbolt and multidisciplinary artist Rodney Graham. Also on display will be a contemporary selection of artist posters from Vancouver artist-run centres like Artspeak, Or Gallery and Western Front. The exhibit will feature a newly commissioned 12-poster series by Sonny Assu. There Is Hope, If We Rise #1-12 is in support of the Idle No More movement, 1200 printed posters will be available for free, and 25 special editions will be available for purchase.
