Canada is a country of immigrants. Every one of us has a family member or neighbours who came to Canada as immigrants. Newcomers bring vibrancy and creativity to our communities. Our diversity also presents tremendous opportunities for businesses catering to diverse customers and expanding to international markets.

Surrey Newcomer Employment Week aims to bring the community together to build better bridges between immigrant job seekers and employers. During the week organizations in Surrey are invited to organize events that improve newcomer economic integration outcomes.
