Village of Burns Lake
rings in the new year with a new look

Burns Lake,
B.C. — The Village of Burns Lake is inviting people everywhere to see how they
can ‘Carve their path’ within the charming northern B.C. community. The
invitation comes as part of the unveiling of the Village’s new municipal brand
and efforts to encourage new and potential residents, visitors and business
owners to explore and discover Burns Lake.

“Like many
small towns, we wanted to put ourselves on the map and showcase all the great
things Burns Lake has to offer,” said Burns Lake Mayor Dolores Funk. “It is
important to position ourselves for success by taking a strategic and cohesive
approach to helping the community thrive. Taking the time to define what makes
Burns Lake special, and who we are as a community, allows us to clearly
communicate the opportunities that await people in Burns Lake.”

Re-developing
the Burns Lake brand involved extensive community involvement, including
gathering information on how residents see and understand the Village, the
qualities that make it unique and why they choose to call Burns Lake home. Feedback
was also gathered from staff, Council, and business owners through a survey,
focus groups, one-on-one conversations and outreach throughout the community to
develop the brand.

It was
clear, through the feedback and research, that people feel a strong connection
to the outdoors when thinking of Burns Lake. They value the opportunities
available through affordable housing and strong community support of both the residents
who live here and of businesses looking to establish and grow. Participants also
referenced the importance of a strong arts community and the Indigenous
heritage of the area. 

“The new
brand was really about reflecting on who we are as a community and what we want
to be,” Sheryl Worthing, Burns Lake Chief Administrative Officer
explained. “We wanted to be able to clearly define our brand so that we
can be intentional with our messaging and feel confident that people can
consistently count on us to live up to their expectations of providing professional,
authentic and friendly service.”

As part of
the brand strategy, the Village has launched a new logo, tagline and developed
supporting business tools to help staff communicate effectively with
stakeholders. The Village also launched its new website, burnslake.ca, which
features improved navigation and tools to help staff provide the latest news
and events to keep the public engaged and informed.

Over the
next few months, the Village will be rolling out the new brand and marketing
strategy, targeting families, entrepreneurs and those looking for a place to
find their niche at the heart of the Lakes District.
