Named after Robert Burnaby, a businessman and legislator during the 1860’s, the city is home to Burnaby mountain (365 m) Burnaby lake, the Fraser River, and Burrard Inlet.
Originally, a sparsely populated rural district, with a population of 400 m in 1990, it has developed into a residential community for workers in Vancouver and New Westminster. Industrial development and construction of large wholesales and retail outlets followed, and urbanization has continued in recent years. Burnaby was incorporated as a district in 1892 and achieved city status in 1992. Its industries include steel fabrication, manufacturing of trucks and telecommunications equipment, lumber and shingle operations, commercial fishing and fish processing. Residential and industrial developments have almost eliminated agriculture.
