Surrey Local Immigration Partnership (LIP)

Pop-up board

The Surrey Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) is a consortium of government, public and private institutions, business, non-profit and community agencies working together to strengthen Surrey’s integration of newcomers and build a more inclusive and welcoming city. It follows in the footsteps of the Surrey Welcoming Communities project that ran from 2012-2014. The LIP steering committee draws representatives from 30 organizations and is co-chaired by Councillor Judy Villeneuve and Anita Huberman who were elected by the Committee.

The Surrey LIP has two strategies that have been adopted by Council: the Surrey Immigrant Integration Strategy (adopted May 2016), and the Surrey Refugee Integration Strategy (adopted July 2017). For detailed information about both of these strategies, and more LIP news and information, please visit the Surrey LIP website.
