Registered Programs

Over 100,000 children and youth currently live in Surrey, and the numbers continue to grow. These young people come from richly diverse families and their energy and exuberance contributes to making Surrey a vibrant and socially sustainable community. Children and youth are one big part of social planning in Surrey - this is why we're committed to making the City a great place for children and youth to live, learn and play.
