Lougheed Town Centre (sometimes abbreviated as Lougheed Mall) is a shopping mall in Burnaby, British Columbia. It is located in the northeast corner of the city, near the border with Coquitlam.

By the number of stores, Lougheed Town Centre is the second largest mall in Burnaby (after Metropolis at Metrotown, the largest mall in the province) with 160 stores and services.

The centre (originally known as Lougheed Mall) opened in 1969 with anchors The Bay, Safeway, and Woolco and also had a three-screen movie theatre within the mall complex from 1969 to 2002. It was operated by Famous Players from its 1969 opening until it closed in February 1991, then sat vacant for a few months until the Theatre Near You chain took it over in November that year as a discount second-run cinema, running it until it closed for good in 2002 when mall management terminated the lease and had the former theatre renovated for additional retail space. The mall was expanded and doubled in size in 1986 and was extensively renovated in the early 2000s.

However, in the late 2000s, many stores began to close and business was at stake. A plan was put forth in 2013 to use up an entire section of the mall to build a Steve Nash Fitness World to attract more customers after losing 40% in the last 5 years.
