Surrey Arts & Business Award Winners
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.
