City Volunteer Opportunities Update

We are pleased to be gradually re-starting many programs and services, with protocols in place to ensure the safety of visitors and staff. Volunteers play an important role in helping to deliver many of these services. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, volunteer opportunities with the City of Burnaby remain suspended until further notice.

We appreciate the effort and commitment of all our volunteers, and look forward to have you back when it is safe to do so.

Interested in helping others? If you are looking for opportunities to give back to your community, meet new people or gain experience, volunteering with the City is the right choice for you.
