Community members are invited to share feedback on early ideas for the City’s Official Community Plan

Last updated: April 16, 2024

The City of Burnaby is inviting residents to share feedback on early ideas for the Burnaby 2050 Official Community Plan (OCP). Phase 3 of the Official Community Plan project, “Drafting,” is underway and involves setting the priorities, strategic direction and policies that will help Burnaby achieve the community’s vision for 2050. 

Community members are encouraged to provide their input on high-level policy directions, growth scenarios, and the draft vision, values and guiding principles. The policy topic areas include transportation, housing, parks, climate change, heritage, economic development, Indigenous cultural heritage and more.

Community members are invited to attend an in-person or virtual open house and share their feedback through the online Policy Guide surveys.  

In-person open houses: 

  • Saturday, May 25, 11 am to 4 pm 
    Burnaby Public Library Metrotown (Program Room on the main floor)
  • Sunday, June 2, noon to 4 pm 
    Brentwood Mall (former Coles space on lower level)

For the in-person open houses, registration is encouraged but not required. Residents who require accessibility accommodations or translation services are asked to register in advance to ensure the City can meet their needs. Register at

Virtual open house: 

  • Thursday, May 30, 7 to 8:30 pm
    Registration will be required to receive the meeting link. Register at

Policy Guide and surveys: 

  • Read the Policy Guide and complete the online survey questions by Sunday, June 9, 2024. Print copies are available at City Hall, community centres and public libraries for people who are unable to access the online version. Residents can also contact [email protected] to receive a print version.
  • There is a different online survey for each topic area. This way community members can choose topics of interest to them and provide feedback specifically on those issues.

The feedback gathered from community members in this phase will be used to refine the draft policies and help prioritize the steps we take to achieve our community’s long-term vision for Burnaby.

This is the third phase of public engagement undertaken by the City of Burnaby to help inform Burnaby 2050 with the first phase taking place in 2022 and the third phase in 2023. Reports summarizing what the City learned from earlier phases of engagement can be found on the City’s website.
