We are pleased to offer the following events and programs online and by phone this February.

February 1, 2021
Arts & Culture Release

During this month of February, we in the City of Surrey, and all over Canada, come together to celebrate and learn about the many achievements and contributions of Black Canadians who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse country it is today.

Let’s all take some time this month to learn new things and celebrate the Black Canadians in our community. 

In light of COVID-19, celebrations will look a little bit different this year. We are encouraging communities to come together virtually. To facilitate this, we have the following events and programs taking place online and by phone this month.
