Burns Lake is a rural village in the North-Central Interior of British Columbia, Canada, incorporated in 1923. It is the location of the head offices of the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako.

There are three First Nations reserves that are part of the town, and another three nearby, making it one of the few communities in the province that have almost equal populations of native and Canadians of European descent. Local nations include Wet'suwet'en First Nation, Lake Babine Nation, Cheslatta Band, Burns Lake band, Skin Tyee band and Nee Tahi Buhn band.

The town serves as a hub for the local logging, saw-milling, mining and tourist industries. There are three pubs, a small selection of stores and services, and a library and a hospital.
