The Semiahmoo and Kwantlen First Nations People had already been present in Surrey for more than 6,000 years by the time that European explorers, road-builders, loggers and settlers first came to the area.

 

Community life centred on a hunting and fishing; tidal resources of shellfish, river supplies of salmon, herring, and oolichans, and shorelines and forests of birds, deer, elk and bear provided ample resources to support life in the delta of the Fraser River.

 

The land was forests of fir, cedar and hemlock, basically untouched. Logging began, the land was cleared, settlement took place and Surrey started to take shape.

 

Surrey was incorporated in 1879, and has a rich history of people with diverse ethnic backgrounds who have come together to make Surrey one of British Columbia's most unique communities.

 

In September of 1993, Surrey officially became a city and over the past few years has undergone tremendous change and growth and the overall quality of life has risen to impressive heights.
