Parkland is seeking public input for a proposed replanting plan at the Yale & North Carleton Gate to provide a visual buffer and improve sound dampening while improving facility fire safety.
As part of our commitment to safety, Burnaby Refinery completed selective tree removals within its storage tank areas in late 2019. While this necessary work was part of Parkland’s proactive efforts to address new industry safety regulations, we did not follow our own standards for proactive communication and notification with our neighbours in advance of work beginning, and for this we sincerely apologize.
On October 1, 2017 the facility changed ownership from Chevron Canada Ltd. to Parkland Refining (B.C.) Ltd. Material generated prior to October 1, 2017 has been retained for continuity.
