The City of Surrey is the largest city by land area and second most populated in Metro Vancouver. With a population of half a million, it’s also one of the fastest growing cities in Canada. New civic centre and highrise condos mark Surrey’s emerging urban core, which lies at the heart of a swath of industrial land that’s home to manufacturers, logistics facilities and port-related activities. Highway 1 and the South Fraser Perimeter Road are key east-west transportation routes that provide rapid access from Surrey to surrounding municipalities and ports. Surrey is also the eastern terminus of the region’s SkyTrain system and a departure point for buses serving the region south of the Fraser. Surrey is home to several well-regarded public and private schools, as well as campuses of Simon Fraser and Kwantlen Polytechnic universities. Morgan Crossing, Grandview Corners and other shopping destinations anchor residential communities, while regional parks in Campbell Valley and Mud Bay offer a refreshing change of pace. White Rock, with its waterfront promenade, and the historic farming community of Cloverdale offer rustic counterpoints to urban pretensions.
Surrey is a fast-growing and increasingly dynamic place to do business and has a number of large shopping malls including Guildford Town Centre and Central City
