Roundtable - Ground Floor Council Chambers

Surrey is the 2nd largest city in British Columbia and the 12th largest city in Canada with a population of over 468,000. And we're still growing. We’re set to become the most populated city in Metro Vancouver by 2020, as people from around the world continue to move to one of the youngest and most culturally diverse cities in Canada.
Surrey’s fast-growing and culturally diverse population, combined with our enviable Pacific Rim location for international trade to Asia and the United States, delivers substantial business opportunities.
