BCIT’s Burnaby campus unveils new Beedie Plaza


The British Columbia Institute of Technology and the Beedie Foundation recently unveiled the new Beedie Plaza. Located at BCIT’s Burnaby campus, the development of the plaza was made possible through a $5M gift from the Beedie Foundation. Beedie Plaza will enhance students’ campus experiences with features such as an Indigenous-designed walkway, green spaces and new seating, and an irrigation system that reduces wastewater and supplies the plaza’s rain garden. “The Plaza invites learners to realize their potential and symbolizes a gateway to future opportunities” said BCIT Interim President Paul McCullough. “It instills a sense of identity and pride for all who pass through this inspiring space.”
