Inventories

​Conducting community-based research and information sharing are the two most prominent roles of the Surrey LIP. Over the years, we have conducted a wide range of research and developed a variety of communication tools to share data and relevant information in a user-friendly format. Here you will find a number of inventories which provide our community partners with better access to funding opportunities, better understanding of anti-racism programming around the world and better linkages to local immigrant and ethnic organizations in Surrey and Metro Vancouver.

Overview: This inventory presents a scan of programs and models that address racism in Surrey, BC, and around the world. It has been developed as part of the True Colours of Surrey, an anti-racial discrimination initiative funded by the Province of British Columbia, and led by the City of Surrey in 2016 (Engaged Community Strategic Direction)

Main goals:  (1) Identify existing initiatives in Surrey that help combat and address racism, and racial discrimination; (2) Identify programs and models outside of Surrey that can serve as examples and catalysts for expanding local community capacity.
