THE City of Surrey hosted a Welcome Day for new refugees at City Hall on Wednesday. The family-oriented event was held to welcome the newcomers and encourage their participation in the community. Equally important, the Welcome Day provided another opportunity for community engagement between residents and the newcomers to Surrey.
“We are proud to host this Welcome Day for the new refugees who now call Surrey home,” said Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner. “The City of Surrey celebrates its diversity and inclusiveness. The generosity and goodwill the new refugees have come across in Surrey will go a long way in helping them achieve success in our City.”
