Surrey City Centre, Canada’s city centre of the future

At the heart of Metro Vancouver, Surrey is rising from the ground up as Canada’s next metropolitan centre. The provincial and federal governments have invested over $1.5 billion into long-term innovation programs, university research, and infrastructure in Surrey over the last 5 years, including Surrey City Centre’s SkyTrain rapid transit extension. These investments are transforming Surrey City Centre into a tech hub where collaborations between industry, government, and academia are spurring new inventions that harness the power of next generation technologies.

TECH TALENT THAT CHALLENGES CONVENTIONAL THINKING

Our University District, anchored by Simon Fraser University and Kwantlen Polytechnic University, is producing critical thinkers and engineers that challenge the status quo and chart new paths to innovation. Our problem solvers push against the grain to gain new heights in STEM, creative arts, mechatronics, and more.

Home to Western Canada’s first sustainable environmental engineering program, the provincial government has also recently invested

$17M into building BC’s first quantum algorithms institute in Surrey City Centre.

STRATEGIC LAUNCHPAD TO REGIONAL & GLOBAL MARKETS

Our modern and expanding infrastructure gives you access to Downtown Vancouver, Vancouver International Airport, the US-Canada border, and two major international ports within an hour from Surrey City Centre. Our high-speed broadband internet connections also provide Surrey-based companies with lightning speeds across the Pacific Northwest and across Canada.  

THE OPPORTUNITY IS HERE. THE OPPORTUNITY IS NOW

With over 1,500 new residents a month and one of the youngest and most diverse populations in the nation, locating here provides you with an urban downtown environment with access to parks, recreation, large events, and restaurants, all within some of the most affordable home prices in the Pacific Northwest.
