City Accomplishments

City employees participate in a Move for Health Event

We’re honoured.

The City of Surrey earned the ranks of BC’s Top Employers in 2017, for the 13th year in a row. We were also recognized as one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People in 2017!

The City was recognised by Mediacorp editors for employee benefits like:

  • Helping employee balance personal and professional responsibilities through alternative work options
  • Encouraging employees to stay healthy with subsidized fitness memberships and on-site classes
  • Assisting older employees prepare for retirement with contributions to a defined benefit pension plan.

If you're inclined, take a peek at the Canada’s Top 100 Employers’ website for the full praise. They've mentioned a few other great things about us, but we don't want to boast. But, we do want to invite you to apply for your next job opportunity and become one of BC's top employees.
