Bringing newcomer voices to the table.

The Surrey LIP Council saw a need to have the voice and input of Surrey immigrants and refugees included in its research and planning processes, so expanded its governance structure to include the direct participation of newcomers through roundtables.

The Immigrant Advisory Table brings together the voice and input of Surrey immigrants and refugees to the Surrey LIP Council’s research and planning processes.

Valuing the lived experiences of immigrant women from diverse backgrounds, this roundtable provides updates, information and input to support the Surrey LIP’s decisions, planning and activities.

To support the Surrey LIP’s work, this roundtable brings the lived experiences and perspectives of the African and Black communities forward, offering the council updates, information and input.

The Surrey Youth Newcomer Council (SYNC) is a community of Surrey youth who are passionate about making the City of Surrey a better place for newcomer youth.
