Welcome to Heritage Burnaby

Heritage Burnaby is an online collaboration that represents all of the community assets, heritage services and historic collections managed by the City of Burnaby, British Columbia. Burnaby was incorporated in 1892 and is today the third largest city in B.C. and a dynamic urban center which is part of Metro Vancouver.

This website is an initiative of the City of Burnaby's Community Heritage Commission and a civic partnership representing the Heritage Program of the Planning and Building Department; the City Archives of the Clerk's Department; Burnaby Village Museum operated by the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department; and the Burnaby Public Library.

Our goal is to provide a comprehensive and interactive community heritage and history website that brings together the 'personal history' of our citizens to create a wider understanding and appreciation of our city's 'collective memory'. Through Heritage Burnaby you can experience, learn and research about our community's unique history through online databases and exhibits that provide access to our heritage sites and landmarks, artifact collections, archival collections and the library's history resources.
