Contact The Burnaby Now

On Nov. 23, 1983 a 12-page broadsheet newspaper called the Burnaby Now first hit the streets of the city. Started out of the ashes of The Columbian newspaper, which published its final edition Nov. 15, 1983 after 123 years in the business, the paper’s founders believed in a community newspaper which cared about the city, its people and commerce. Three decades later the Burnaby Now has grown to a large tabloid paper with a dynamic website and informative social media feeds. It is delivered to over 44,000 doorsteps on Thursdays and thousands of readers count on the Burnaby Now’s team to deliver breaking news, sports, advertisements, and opinion pieces daily.

The Burnaby Now depends upon its community connections and readers for information, comments and critiques. We welcome your input.
