BC Liberal Harry Bloy beat the second-place BC NDP candidate in a close race in 2009, the year the riding was first contested. Bloy resigned from cabinet in early 2012 after controversy stemming from his improperly sharing a reporter's email.

Other candidates include Jane Shin, who has her medical doctorate from St. Lucia and teaches at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, for the BC NDP. In late April, the BC Liberals accused Shin of inflating her credentials. See a Georgia Straight report here.

Ken Kramer is the BC Liberal candidate. Kramer studied business administration at Simon Fraser University and law at the University of British Columbia, and founded the KMK Law Corporation.

Lab technician Darwin Burns is the BC Green candidate.

Christine Clarke, the director of the Canadian Skin Patient Alliance and the president of the Canadian Association of Psoriasis Patients, is a non-affiliated candidate. The BC Conservatives did not properly file Clarke's papers. Clarke was once the party's president and previously ran unsuccessfully in a byelection in the former Port Moody-Coquitlam district.

Burnaby-Lougheed was created in 2008 as part of the provincial boundary redistribution from parts of Burquitlam, Burnaby-Edmonds and Burnaby North.
