Who We Are

The North Road BIA is a dynamic society dedicated to fostering growth and safety in the Burnaby North Road Business Improvement Area. We actively engage in studies and initiatives aimed at enhancing our community. Our collaborative approach allows us to work effectively with various individuals, groups, and associations on projects that bring benefits to our area. We strive to address the needs and interests of property and business owners, creating a thriving, inclusive environment.

Our Journey and Future Path

Our story began over a decade ago, when we started organizing special events and promotions such as the Korean Community Days and the annual Easter Event. These have since become beloved traditions in our community, fostering a sense of unity and promoting local businesses. We've cultivated strategic partnerships that have played a crucial role in our community's development.

Our vision builds on this rich history. Our strategic plan is to maintain and expand our involvement and awareness, effectively communicating with all our members. Our future is integrated, safe, inviting, and accessible — with movement into and within our area facilitated by walking, cycling, transit, and automobiles.
