About Burnaby Meals on Wheels Society

Burnaby Meals on Wheels promotes health and independence by providing nutritious, local and affordable food to people who – for physical, mental health, social or economic reasons – are unable to meet their dietary needs.


About Burnaby Community Services

Founded in 1971, Burnaby Community Services is a charitable society providing a voice, resources and opportunities to people who need support. We believe change can only happen when people are empowered to improve their lives and their community. Currently, we offer a range of programs and publications to support families with LOW INCOME, and seniors experiencing ISOLATION.


The Grand Parade will specifically raise funds for programs servicing seniors, including our Seniors Transportation Program, Welcoming Seniors' Spaces Program, Christmas Hampers for Seniors, and more.


About Burnaby Seniors Outreach Society

Since our inception in 1987 as a charitable organization, Burnaby Seniors Outreach Services, through our peer counselling and related activities, has been providing emotional support and encouragement to older citizens of Burnaby, assisting them to enhance their quality of life, to develop problem management strategies and to maintain the greatest level of independence and dignity possible.


The society is directed by a voluntary Board, all of whom are seniors, coordinated by part-time staff, and functions with a dedicated corps of service volunteers.
