Burnaby

Modern home with the Canadian flag reflected

Burnaby has evolved from an agricultural area through a suburban dormitory community to a largely urban city. As a convenient location in the geographical centre of Greater Vancouver it has attracted many people and businesses to settle there, making Burnaby the most densely populated area in the region.

Location:

Burnaby is located on the Burrard Peninsula between Vancouver to the west and New Westminster and Coquitlam to the east.

Arts

Sports facilities

Parks

Burnaby is fortunate enough to have a number of spectacular public parks.

Housing:

Burnaby is a relatively high density area and this is seen in the numbers of apartments. There are also townhouses (low rise buildings with three or more strata units) and duplexes. However there are still a large number of houses, even though their turnover is lower.

If you are interested in buying in this area (or anywhere in BC) please use our form to tell so that we can help you find the right area and the right home. Our local experts are available here and for most other areas.
