Corporate Strategic Plan

Our vision: A world-class city committed to creating and sustaining the best quality of life for our entire community


Burnaby is a vibrant city at the geographic centre of Metro Vancouver. It has an amazing natural environment, a strong cultural mosaic and thriving town centres.

At the City of Burnaby, we provide facilities and services that support a safe, connected, inclusive, healthy and dynamic community. The City works collaboratively with residents, businesses, organizations and other governments. We are proud of our accomplishments and driven to constantly improve our services.

Our Corporate Strategic Plan is founded on and guided by the goals we established through a series of forward-thinking, long-term plans. The council-adopted trilogy of sustainability strategies (social, environmental and economic), the Official Community Plan and other City policies establish the planning and resource context for all our work.

This plan is the result of the collaborative efforts of City Council and staff. The goals and principles articulated in the plan will be reflected in the City’s Annual Financial Plan and other City plans. The goals and principles also guide staff in delivering services, setting priorities and developing programs. And they guide the specific projects and initiatives we develop to move the City toward reaching our goals and realizing our vision.
