The Plan for the Social Well-Being of Surrey Residents (shortened as the Social Plan) was adopted by Council in February 2006 to strategically direct the City’s actions on social issues in Surrey.

The Social Plan focuses on five themes or social issue areas that were identified as priorities by the City of Surrey:

Through an extensive community consultation process, thirty priority issue elements and 65 recommended actions were identified. The Social Plan divides the thirty issue elements into two categories:

  • five are issues for which the City has primary responsibility - Stage 1 Action Plan
  • twenty-five are issues for which the City has limited, secondary or no responsibility -Stage 2 Action Plan
