Economic Development

Surrey’s fast-growing and culturally diverse population, combined with our enviable Pacific Rim location for international trade to Asia and the United States, delivers substantial business opportunities.

For the third year in a row, the Real Estate Investment Network has named Surrey the best place in British Columbia to invest. We were also recognized as the Clean Energy Association of BC “Community of the Year” in 2011, for our integrated approach to sustainability and energy conservation.
