The Burnaby Now is your go-to choice for news coverage in print and online 24/7 with breaking news, informed opinions and stories that will enlighten you about our community.

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 is your news leader with more than 40 fresh stories posted each day – from news to community to entertainment to features to sports. We’ve even added extensive coverage of the growing foodie scene.

The Now has grown to a large tabloid newspaper 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 fresh content all day, every day.

To assist our crack team of seasoned journalists, we also rely on our readers to tell us what stories are important to them and why.
