About Burnaby Heights

The Heights is one of the best kept secrets in the Lower Mainland – a community with a big heart that feels like a small town. With a strong sense of community and history, beautiful views, parks and trails, recreational amenities, and a thriving business district all within walking distance, on the Heights, life is as it should be. Explore the Heights and make this place your own.

About 150 years ago, the Heights was part of the rolling landscape that would one day be Greater Vancouver. North Burnaby’s early development was in a sense, an extension of Vancouver. The Heights commercial area has been a street-level community shopping area for over 100 years now, and still retains much of its unique flavour. In the early 1900’s thousands of immigrants came to the west coast of B.C. With the opening of Hastings Street in 1902, and the arrival of the streetcar in North Burnaby in 1908, Burnaby was finally open for larger settlement, and with population growth, the first merchants soon appeared.

Merchants have worked together to promote the area, organize public events and lobby the government since 1954, and in 1994 the Heights Merchants Business Improvement Area (BIA) was formed, the first BIA in Burnaby. The diversity, history, and unique partnership between the community at large and the merchants continue to make the Heights one of the few communities in the Lower Mainland that truly feels like a small town with a big heart.
