The Surrey Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) is a consortium of government, public and private institutions, business, non-profit and community agencies working together to strengthen Surrey’s integration of newcomers and build a more inclusive and welcoming city.

The Surrey LIP has two strategies that have been adopted by City Council: the Surrey Immigrant Integration Strategy (adopted May 2016), and the Surrey Refugee Integration Strategy (adopted July 2017).
