Welcome to Surrey, the fastest growing city in British Columbia. Surrey began as a suburb of Vancouver, but now is the city with the second largest population in BC and is on track to become the largest by 2041. With such growth on the horizons, Surrey is attracting its own business and development opportunities to support and service their diverse population. Known for its large South Asian community, Surrey is a multicultural and increasingly cosmopolitan place to call home. The lower real estate prices are attractive to both families searching for a home with a backyard, and for first time buyers searching out condos with shopping and transit just outside their door.
