Past Projects

Surrey Welcoming Communities Project

Prior to the shift to the Surrey LIP, the City of Surrey managed the Surrey Welcoming Communities Project with many of the same members on both committees. The provincially funded Surrey Welcoming Communities Committee supported multiple initiatives that included training sessions, research and resource development, dialogues, conferences and exhibitions. The intent of these projects was to raise awareness of the contributions immigrants and refugees make and the barriers and challenges they face and to discuss and explore means to make Surrey a more welcoming and inclusive community.
