What is Surrey LIP?

Surrey Local Immigration Partnership  (LIP) was formed in 2014 to bring multiple stakeholders together and develop innovative community-driven responses to immigrant and refugee integration. The partnership is governed by the Surrey LIP Committee and supported by the Surrey Immigrant Advisory Roundtable and Refugee Youth Team.

In 2016, Surrey LIP developed a three-year Surrey Immigrant Integration Strategy and, in 2017, a three-year Refugee Integration Strategy was developed. Together, both strategies have outlined a community plan and key strategic directions for Surrey to move forward towards Surrey LIP's vision: Everyone in Surrey Belongs!

Now, in 2020, the Surrey LIP, under the guidance of a new LIP project management team, is working with committee members to develop a refreshed approach.
