Burnaby seeking input into location for new City Hall in Metrotown area

Last updated: June 29, 2023

Survey deadline has been extended to July 30. Learn more.

The City of Burnaby is seeking public input to determine the best location for a new City Hall in the Metrotown area, to replace the aging facility at 4949 Canada Way. 

Burnaby residents can fill out a survey to share their thoughts on the potential locations for the new City Hall, as well as their ideas for programming and amenities that could be included in the project. The survey closes at midnight on July 7, 2023. 

Residents can also learn more and share their input at a series of open house and pop-up events this month:

Pop-up event 

  • Hats Off Day, Saturday, June 3 – 9:30 am-4 pm (Hastings Street, from Gamma to Boundary)

Open house (no registration required) 

  • Bonsor Recreation Complex (6550 Bonsor Ave)
    • Tuesday, June 13 – 5 pm-8:30 pm
    • Tuesday, June 27 – 5 pm-8:30 pm

City Council identified the Metrotown area as the preferred location for a new City Hall as it is designated as Burnaby’s downtown in the 2017 Metrotown Downtown Plan. It is also a “regional city centre” under Metro Vancouver’s Regional Growth Strategy.

Built in 1955, the existing building at 4949 Canada Way has reached the end of its service life. To extend its use, significant upgrades would be required to meet current building code standards at an estimated cost of $70M.
