BNH hopes you and your family are staying healthy and well during this challenging time. We are staying apart right…
Burnaby Neighbourhood House is a community driven and community funded agency located on the unceded territories of the Tsleil-Wauthuth (səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ), Kwikwetlem (kʷikʷəƛ̓əm), Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw) and Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) nations with a unique focus on neighbours supporting neighbours.
We are complying with BC Sept 13th COVID Public Health Orders. Some BNH facilities and services/programs require us to request proof of vaccination, and all facilities require continued social distancing, hand sanitizing, COVID health checks and mandatory mask wearing at all times.
The Health and Safety of our Employees, Volunteers, and Community are our top priority. If you need any assistance with making vaccination bookings, obtaining proof of vaccination, or requiring special assistance, our volunteers are available during Computer Support times (South: Monday 12-2, Thursday 3-5, North: Monday 10-12 or call for an appointment) to assist you.
BNH needs your help with the new daycare programs!
Burnaby Neighbourhood House is pleased to be providing you with quality daycare and preschool programs which we know first hand are very important to the health and well-being of you and your family. BNH staff and community members have worked with parents over the past 20 years to advocate for daycare and to raise funds for our daycare and preschool operations. We remember fundraising for buildings that Clinton and Gilpin are currently in and we remember fundraising for equipment and toys when we started up all the other 7 centres.
You can imagine how excited we are to have 3 new daycare buildings built through a partnership with the Burnaby School District and the City of Burnaby with funding from the Province’s New Spaces Fund.
The Suncrest Centre just opened in September 2021, and the Marlborough Early Years Centre and Preschool/School Age Care are scheduled to open in early 2022.
But we need your help! These beautiful buildings need to be furnished with equipment and supplies to make these new spaces welcoming places for all children. Financial contributions no matter how big or small will help us fully furnish the new daycare centres.
Please consider donating to one of the subject areas the children will explore in at these centres!

Our societies have a long-standing working relationship and are now coming fully together to better serve the residents of Burnaby, share resources, strengthen our programs and better integrate our services to address the growing needs in our community.
Burnaby Neighbourhood House board and staff are committed to keeping all current programs and services of the societies operating and look forward to maintaining the financial support from funders and donors to ensure sustainability and success in the years to come.
We will be working together in the coming months on a transition plan that we expect to be completed by December 2021.
