In response to COVID-19, the Province is funding the expansion of bc211, a province-wide information and referral service, to match seniors with volunteers. Call 2-1-1 if you are a senior and would like to be linked with a volunteer who can deliver groceries, medications, and many other needs. 

For other areas of assistance, we have compiled a convenient list of COVID-19 resources available for Surrey Seniors.
