- Infectious Diseases · Health Conditions · Surrey · Vancouver · Kwantlen Polytechnic University

The Sur­rey Board of Trade pre­sented the win­ners of the 4th Sur­rey Arts & Busi­ness Awards.

Ow­ing to the COVID-19 pan­demic, most cul­tural in­sti­tu­tions were in­def­i­nitely closed, and in­per­son ex­hi­bi­tions, events, and per­for­mances were can­celled or post­poned. In re­sponse, there were in­ten­sive ef­forts to pro­vide al­ter­na­tive or ad­di­tional in­no­va­tive ser­vices through dig­i­tal plat­forms, and to main­tain es­sen­tial ac­tiv­i­ties with min­i­mal re­sources.

CALL TO AC­TION: The Sur­rey Board of Trade stands in sol­i­dar­ity with arts or­ga­ni­za­tions, their em­ploy­ees, and artists as the pan­demic con­tin­ues to un­fold. We want the com­mu­nity of au­di­ence mem­bers, donors, and grant-mak­ers to do what they can to con­tinue their sup­port to arts and cul­ture through this time of un­cer­tainty.

The Sur­rey Board of Trade is proudly sup­port­ing the con­struc­tion of a 125-bed long-term care fa­cil­ity for the South-asian com­mu­nity to be lo­cated in Sur­rey (6471 175A Street). Con­struc­tion is sched­uled for early 2022 with com­ple­tion and oc­cu­pancy ex­pected in Au­gust 2024. This is a $58.3 mil­lion project, with $5 mil­lion to be raised by the com­mu­nity as part of the com­mu­nity’s con­tri­bu­tion to the project.

The need for a mul­ti­cul­tural se­nior’s long term care home has been acutely felt in the com­mu­nity for a long time. The Sur­rey Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal cur­rently houses 150 South Asian se­niors and this fa­cil­ity will not only ease the over­crowd­ing at the hos­pi­tal but will also save the govern­ment at least $1,000 per day, per se­nior.
