The Surrey LIP project is led by the 30 member Committee and is Co-Chaired by Councillor Brenda Locke and DIVERSEcity CEO, Neelam Sahota. Working Groups and the Immigrant Advisory Roundtable provide updates, information and input that supports the Committee’s decisions and planning.

The Committee and Working Groups are supported by the Project Management Team (comprised of the LIP Coordinator, two subject area consultants and a senior social planner).

The City of Surrey holds the Contribution Agreement with Citizenship and Immigration Canada for the LIP.  As such, the City is responsible for ensuring the deliverables are met on time and within budget.

Information and updates on the progress and results of the Surrey LIP project will be provided to Mayor and Council, to the City of Surrey’s Social Policy Advisory Committee, and ultimately to the full community of stakeholders.
