Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity in Surrey

The City of Surrey values and embraces diversity, and seeks to ensure that all people feel welcome and included. We value diversity by celebrating individual difference, and viewing diversity as multilayered, with each individual offering unique perspective, experience and ability. We value inclusion by ensuring that our policies, plans, programs and services are inclusive to all people through:

  • Identifying barriers and create opportunities for meaningful participation;
  • Celebrating the multiple layers of diversity within Surrey;
  • Engaging community agencies in program planning and implementation through collaboration and partnerships;
  • Developing policies, plans, programs and services that address the needs of all people within the community.
