Immigrant Volunteers are Needed: The Surrey Welcoming Communities Action Plan is Surrey community’s response to a pressing challenge of making this community more inclusive and welcoming. The Surrey Welcoming Communities Project (SWCP) brings together 25 agencies, organizations and institutions, all committed to advancing Surrey’s progress as a priority part of a BC-wide “welcome” initiative.

The Welcoming Spaces and Workplaces initiative is supported by a project advisory comprised of several members of the Surrey Welcoming Communities Committee. Currently, the initiative is seeking volunteers to participate in a study on the welcoming nature of our community.

Volunteers will:

  • Visit local organizations
  • Record their experience
  • Note best practices
  • Make recommendations

How Our Members Contribute to National Projects
