High Streamflow Advisory: Fraser River

Updated May 18, 2018

The River Forecast Centre has issued a High Streamflow Advisory for the Fraser River due to increased snow melt. River levels are rising and are expected to continue to rise, creating surging and faster flowing water over the long weekend and through to later next week.

City staff are monitoring water levels, conducting daily patrols of areas adjacent to the Fraser River, and are prepared for possible minor flooding as part of our Flood Response Plan »

“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change” – Heraclitus

Constant change has been experienced in the 50 years since the grand opening of the Burnaby Arts Centre, now the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. Seasons come and go and with each season we gain new staff, instructors and guest artists. Each year some leave for new adventures or enter into retirement. Some patrons are long term students, with personal commitments to an arts practice, while others are new to our services, perhaps checking out a class for the first time. Program offerings shift and change to respond to the needs of the community, providing opportunities for students to learn new things, and challenge what has already been learned. Infrastructure is constantly being upgraded as we ensure that demands on the facility are being met. Projects are always underway to expand spaces, support the purchase of new equipment and introduce new technology to our programs.

With change comes an opportunity to grow. Change means you’re trying new things and understanding yourself better. A willingness to change indicates an ability to bend and flex while you receive new information about the world around you. At the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, we encourage growth, encourage change, and support a flexible environment to stimulate learning. Experience growth like no other – expand the world around you – practice art!
