Lana McKay
Manager, Human Resources

The City of Surrey's Human Resources (HR) department provides quality of programs and services to internal and external clients. These services encompass a broad range of City needs, including labour relations, recruitment and retention, performance management, employment services, compensations & benefits, occupational health & safety and corporate training & development. HR partners with other City departments to attract and maintain a qualified and diverse workforce.

The City's HR department is involved in the Surrey LIP because we value and embrace diversity, and seek to ensure that all people feel welcome and included. We hire employees with diverse backgrounds in order to reflect Surrey's vibrant culture. One of the biggest challenges newcomers face is finding employment. Through Surrey LIP we'll gain a better understanding of these barriers so we could deliver programs, services, and various training options that will help strengthen the integration of newcomers into the workplace.
