About Burnaby

Burnaby is a city in British Columbia, located immediately to the east of Vancouver. It is the third-largest city in British Columbia by population, smaller in size to only Surrey and Vancouver. It was incorporated in 1892 and gained city status in 1992, exactly one hundred years after incorporation.

At incorporation, the municipality's citizens unanimously chose to name it after the legislator, speaker, Freemason and explorer Robert Burnaby. In 1859 Burnaby had surveyed the freshwater lake near what is now the city's geographical centre.

In the first 40 years after the city was incorporated, the growth of Burnaby was accelerated by its location between expanding urban centres of Vancouver and New Westminster. It first served as a rural agricultural area supplying nearby markets. Later, it served as an important transportation corridor between Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and the Interior and continues to until this day. As Vancouver expanded and became a metropolis, it was one of the first-tier bedroom community suburbs of Vancouver. Burnaby has since shifted in character over time from rural to suburban to urban.

Burnaby occupies 98.60 square kilometres and is located at the geographical centre of the Metro Vancouver area. The elevation of Burnaby ranges from sea level to a maximum of 370 metres atop Burnaby Mountain. Due to its elevation, the city of Burnaby experiences quite a bit more snowfall during the winter months than nearby Vancouver or Richmond. Overall, the physical landscape of Burnaby is one of hills, ridges and valleys.

British Columbia's largest commercial mall, the Metropolis at Metrotown is located in Burnaby. Still, Burnaby's ratio of park land to residents is one of the highest in North America, and it maintains some agricultural land, particularly along the Fraser flats.
