It’s National Volunteer Week!!
Help us celebrate our most valuable resource at BNH, our volunteers! If you see a volunteer thank them for all of their hard work and contributions to their community.
Welcome to Burnaby Neighbourhood House!
The Burnaby Neighbourhood House is a place where families and individuals can come to get support and services; a place where new immigrants become connected and can find information and resources that will help them settle into their new community; where seniors and youth can gather; and where all these groups can come together in activities and events that aim to link generations and cultures to create a stronger community.
Community building is a common theme of Neighbourhood Houses where neighbours help neighbours. Volunteers, therefore, are an integral part of our Neighbourhood House.
We are now accepting registration for Summer Camp!

"Our daughter has been attending Lochdale Before and After School Care from Kindergarten to Grade 3. Each morning, she runs from my parked car to the program to take part in the activities and to catch up with her friends. The staff are always welcoming, knowledgeable and prepared, with lots of interesting activities during the morning and afternoon. From a parental perspective, we know our daughter is safe and engaged. We recommend this program to other parents looking for a quality care environment for their children.”
"I am very glad that my daughter is having wonderful time in the school. Its her most favourite hang-out place."
"I am indeed fortunate to have had the opportunity to be associated to Burnaby Neighbourhood (BNH) House as a Volunteer. When I landed as an immigrant in Burnaby, BNH gave me the sense of belonging that I needed in a new country and in a new environment. It gave me the chance to integrate into the new culture, make friends and learn about the work environment in Canada by volunteering at the Neighbourhood House. Moreover, the varied volunteer opportunities polished my skills set in different areas and gave me a lot of confidence in my job search. The warmth, encouragement and experience that I got at Burnaby Neighbourhood House are priceless and I am indeed grateful to everybody for all their support and assistance."
"Our daughter has been attending the BNH Marlborough before and after school care program (and camps) for 6 years. The program is very well designed. Our daughter has made many friends through the program and definitely considers the staff to be great friends. We know the program is meeting our daughter's emotional and physical needs because she wants to go each day and loves staying as long as she can. The program always offers exciting activities and the staff are very in tune with all the children's needs. The staff are extremely approachable and their passion toward providing the absolute best program is evident every day, they truly love the children. We do not think parents could find a better program for their children."
“It was my first time doing volunteer here in Canada. Before I thought that volunteers just helped people, but after I became a volunteer with BNH, I realized that it was me who was greatly helped. Everyone at BNH is caring and helpful as BNH is a place full of love. Not only the volunteers, all the clients that we worked with are very nice too. They always appreciated my work a lot and gave me the feeling that I'm a person that is needed.”
"My son, Diyako is really enjoying the program now. He comes home each day and trying to sing the songs he is learning at preschool. He is very happy with his teacher Kasha and Brigit is wonderful too. They are very respectful and trying to get the kids attention. I also appreciate the program and happy that Diyako is enjoying his preschool."
