At the centre of the Burrard Peninsula in the Lower Mainland region of the province of British Columbia, the city of Burnaby is adjacent to the city of Vancouver to the west and across the Burrard Inlet from the District of North Vancouver. Burnaby is British Columbia’s third-largest city by population (after Vancouver and Surrey) and known for its extensive parks and industrial lands. Atop Burnaby Mountain, seminal Simon Fraser University, designed by Canada’s most influential and award-winning architect, Arthur Erickson, offers a compact, highly functional campus with spectacular views. Simon Fraser University and the British Columbia Institute of Technology provide local and international students with top-notch advanced education and coveted job placement opportunities. High-tech companies, such as Ballard Power (fuel cell), Clio (legal software), D-Wave (quantum computing), General Fusion (fusion power), and EA Vancouver, have made Burnaby their home, and the Metropolis at Metrotown is the fifth largest shopping mall in Canada and a favoured destination of shoppers in the Metro Vancouver Regional District.
