Everyone who lives, works or plays in Burnaby is invited to take an online survey to help shape the future of Burnaby. Community members can complete the survey at until July 17, 2023.

“This is your chance to have your say about how Burnaby grows and evolves and I encourage you to share your input and tell us what you love and value about Burnaby, and the things that matter most to you,” said Mayor Mike Hurley. “The Burnaby 2050 Official Community Plan will be the blueprint to shape the way Burnaby lives, learns, works and plays – this is your chance to help shape Burnaby’s future.” 

Municipalities in British Columbia have the authority to develop an Official Community Plan (OCP) under the Local Government Act. An OCP guides the growth and development of a community. It provides direction on land use, transportation, housing, environment, infrastructure, parks, agriculture, economic development, arts and culture, climate action and more.
