Thank you for your interest in the 2020 Burnaby Festival of Learning.

Following information and advice about COVID-19 from regional and provincial health officers concerning the need to promote physical distancing, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Burnaby Festival of Learning. All in-person Festival events and meetings will be cancelled until June 1st.

We will continue to monitor the effects of COVID-19 in order to determine  if and when it might be beneficial to support our partners in moving any of the programming online. And we will provide timely updates on this page  if and when an alternative version of the Burnaby Festival of Learning becomes possible in the coming months.

Please subscribe to our email newsletter so you don’t miss any updates! (You can unsubscribe at any time.)


We are grateful  for everyone’s help and support in this important time, and we are committed to working with our communities to minimize the risks wherever possible.

(SFU – one of our presenting partners – continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and is providing helpful information on their COVID-19 FAQs page.)
