In 2018, we set out to bring radical change to how politics are done in the City of Surrey.
Our ideas and our team are a result of this new direction.

Get Involved

Building Surrey together.

There is so much to be proud of in Surrey. And there is so much work still to do. We imagine a Surrey that is safe for everyone, where our city is known to be strong and inviting. We imagine a Surrey that is rich with opportunity and vibrant with culture. Our vision is to engage the youth and families of Surrey so that, together, we shape the future of our city.

Public Safety

Taking immediate steps to curb violence must be balanced with long-term policy decisions — ensuring that we prevent problems before they happen.

Connecting Communities

From LRT to an Innovation Hub, we're interested in the  investments that strengthen the fabric of our community, making Surrey more vibrant and inviting.

Housing & Livability

Every month 1,300 new residents choose Surrey for its livability and amenities for young families. Let's invest in what's working and future protect our city.

Arts & Culture

The vibrancy and maturity of a city is often judged by the quality of its artistic expression. It's time for Surrey to invest for the future of our cultural landscape.

Sports & Recreation

Our public venues are second to none in the Province. Pride of place comes from supporting homegrown talent, cultivated on our own fields and facilities.

Open & Transparent Government

Let's shape our future, together. That can only happen when everyone feels welcome at City Hall, and our residents understand how decisions are made.



Our future is at stake.
We want to build it with you.
