Mayor & Council

The mayor and eight councillors make up city council, the governing body of the City of Surrey. The main functions of a municipal council are to look after the current and future economic, social and environmental wellbeing of its community.

"As the elected representative of the citizens of Surrey, we are delivering not just what we promised to do, but we are acting on what the people have said would be best for their city."

- Mayor Doug McCallum

Key Initiatives

Surrey-Langley SkyTrain

We’re moving forward with a SkyTrain extension along Fraser Highway. It will connect Surrey and Langley, and the rest of the region. We’re also initiating a planning process to refresh the Surrey-Newton-Guildford rapid transit strategy.

Surrey Police Department

Council also approved a motion to start work on creating a Surrey Police Department and serve notice to the Federal and Provincial governments that the City of Surrey will be terminating its contract with the RCMP municipal police service.
