Mayor's Statement

Canada’s largest Khalsa Day Vaisakhi Parade took place on April 22 in Surrey, and over half a million people were in attendance. Thank you to all participants, volunteers and local businesses who helped make the Surrey Vaisakhi Parade a successful event. With the power of our communities in Surrey, we will see continued growth and positive change in our city. Thank you to all the men and women who helped keep public safety a priority in Surrey, including Surrey Fire Service, Surrey RCMP, Surrey Police Service, Surrey Bylaws and BC Ambulance Service. I would also like to thank the City’s Parks, Recreation & Culture and Engineering departments for helping the city host a successful celebration. We look forward to hosting future events in our beautiful city, facilitating unity and connections worldwide.

Mayor Brenda Locke
