Inclusive City Cafés
Surrey is a very culturally diverse city with 40% of the population foreign born, and receives more Government Assisted Refugees (GARs) than any other B.C. municipality. This rich diversity brings vibrancy and innovation to the city, yet both newcomer and "receiving" communities in Surrey are experiencing challenges in adapting to new ways of being and living in such a diverse city.
The Inclusive City Cafés will provide a safe and welcoming space for community members to discuss the challenges and opportunities of living in a diverse community—and start to explore how we can become a healthier and more inclusive city.
This series is a partnership between the Surrey Local Immigration Partnership, the City of Surrey, SFU Philosophers' Cafe, and the SFU Surrey - TD Community Engagement Centre.
