History

Surrey received its name because of the County of the same name in England. When Englishman H.J. Brewer, looked across the Fraser River from New Westminster and saw a land evocative of his native County, Surrey was established.

Surrey has roots in being a farm, fishing, and harvesting community. Surrey is now largely made up of young families, as the communities in Northern Surrey contain many single-family dwellings.

This city has seen exceptional growth since the 1980s and has become quite a multicultural locale; with people from across Canada and around the world choosing to make this special place their home.
