Burnaby is a great place to live, learn, work and play. The City is committed to strengthening overall well-being and growing into the future as a liveable, vibrant and sustainable community. Burnaby works to facilitate an engaged and active citizenry, a healthy economy and a real respect for the natural environment. Burnaby's four town centres offer a full range of housing and services.
The town centres help to provide complete communities, providing residents with an option to walk, bike, take transit or drive to locally access a mix of goods and services to meet their daily needs. All of Burnaby’s four town centres provide office, retail, and supportive professional services. All are served by rapid transit. All provide an abundance of higher density housing opportunities. Burnaby has one Regional City Centre (Metrotown) and three Municipal Town Centres (Brentwood, Edmonds, and Lougheed).
