The Burnaby Board of Trade is Burnaby's pre-eminent business association with over 1,000 members from a broad range of industry clusters. We work to bring businesses together to develop strong networks, to represent the interests of the business community to local government, and to foster economic development. We also provide a range of services and benefits to our members such as specialized or exclusive events and workshops, and discounted rates on common business expenses.

The Burnaby Board of Trade is considered one of the most innovative and fastest growing Boards of Trade in Canada. We offer over 60 events a year including our Distinguished Speaker Series which this year included talks with NDP Leader Adrian Dix, Minister Kevin Falcon, Minister Wally Oppal and Premier Christy Clark. As the economic development arm of the City of Burnaby we are also involved through our committees in a number of social development issues including Homelessness, The Environmental Pledge Project,Immigrant Integration and Access (a university student career bridging program.)
The BBOT is deeply involved in the Burnaby community. We work closely with and support our not-for-profit organizations and work collaboratively to identify issues that affect both business and the community.
Now we get to the great part. The BBOT is a collaborative work environment that combines experience (we know what that means :) and fresh talent. While the work we do is serious in nature and requires a high degree of professionalism, our team approach is to have fun while taking on big challenges. It's a great place to work.
