Business Outreach Program

industry tour

The City of Surrey is committed to building a positive business environment and encouraging the growth of its 19,000 local businesses. Since it was introduced in 2009, the Business Outreach Program has reached out to more than 5,000 businesses and has helped existing and new Surrey-based businesses develop and expand in Surrey.

The program involves inviting businesses to participate in one-on-one interviews with a City representative from the Economic Development team. The interviews help us understand the needs of businesses around Surrey, and what actions we can take to remove barriers to enable business to succeed in Surrey.
