Changing faces: Surrey is a city transformed by newcomers

More than 150,000 immigrants have settled here so far and more are choosing the city as their home all the time.

Surrey’s immigrant population is the fastest growing in Metro Vancouver and is expected to soon be home to a “visible majority.”

The Surrey-North Delta Leader has published a special edition exploring the changes and challenges that have come with being such an ethnically rich and divers community.

Surrey in Focus: The Face of Immigration features stories on mixed marriages; ethnic “pockets” such as the South Asian neighbourhood along the Scott Road corridor and the Filipino community in Guildford; notable newcomers who have made a difference; the plight of refugees; and more.
