Surrey’s Kensington Prairie Community Centre has received a Gold Award in the municipal category of the Institute of Public Administration of Canada/Deloitte Public Leadership Awards.

Kensington Prairie’s programming is unique in that the City of Surrey works with nine partners to deliver services at the facility. This integrated service delivery model allows KP to provide a wide-range of early childhood development programming and resources, including child care, education and health, maximize limited resources, limit duplication and build strong relationships.

“This increased capacity to deliver service through Kensington Prairie Community Centre has benefitted the Surrey community and will continue to do so for years to come,” said Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts. “On behalf of Surrey City Council and the City of Surrey, we are honoured and heartened to receive this award.”

The Institute of Public Administration of Canada/Deloitte Public Sector Leadership Awards program recognizes organizations that have demonstrated outstanding leadership by taking bold steps to improve Canada, through advancements in public policy and management.
