The City of Surrey (the “City”) is seeking the services of potential not-for-profit operators (the “Society”) experienced and qualified to operate on-site childcare services (the “Services”) at Surrey Sport and Leisure Complex, located at #100 – 16555 Fraser Highway, in Surrey, BC, V4N 0E9 (the “Daycare”).


Fleetwood is one of Surrey’s most recently developed town centres that is home to a variety of natural parks, schools and recreation centres. The Daycare will reside within the Surrey Sport and Leisure Complex of which will eventually run parallel to the Surrey Langley SkyTrain extension. Through a comprehensive community plan that anticipates rapid growth along the SkyTrain extension stations, the City plans to add 20 new childcare spaces at this complex that will be operated by a Society.

Across the province, there is a significant shortage of licensed childcare spaces. To help fill this shortage, the Province’s Ministry of Children and Family Development established the Childcare BC New Spaces Fund to assist local governments in creating new, licensed childcare spaces within existing sites or in facilities under long-term user agreements with the local government. The City is undergoing a retrofit of 1 multipurpose room for the Services. Details on existing equipment and benefits of the retrofit are further detailed in section 3. The City was awarded $800,000 in grant funds for the project with the commitment to create 20 licensed childcare spaces for families with children under age 5.


If the City determines that an amendment is required to this RFQ, the City Representative will issue a written addendum by posting it on the BC Bid Website at and the City Website at (collectively, the “Websites”), and upon posting, any addenda will form part of this RFQ. It is the responsibility of Contractors to check the Websites for addenda. The only way this RFQ may be added to, or amended in any way, is by a formal written addendum. No other communication, whether written or oral, from any person will affect or modify the terms of this RFQ or may be relied upon by any Contractor. By delivery of a Quotation, the Contractor is deemed to have received, accepted and understood the entire RFQ, including any and all addenda.

All inquiries related to this RFQ should be directed in writing to
