– We are pleased to announce we have a new office!!!

OUR NEW ADDRESS AS OF MARCH 1, 2021 IS #606-4980 Kingsway, Burnaby, BC V5H 4K7

We will be located in the 5000 Plaza on Kingsway in Burnaby. Most of you may remember we had an office in that complex above the Royal Bank for more than four years, before moving into the Joyce street office. Once we are moved in and are able to be open to members and visitors we will send out a notice with detailed directions to our new office via sky train and bus. The office is between the Metro Town Station and Royal Oak station, from either station it is about a 10 min walk or 2 to 3 minute bus ride.

Due to the move the office will be closed on February 26th and it may take longer for staff to return calls or emails during Feb 24th to March 2nd 2021, as we prepare to do the big move on Saturday the February 27th.
